It IS a bit pricey ($78) in the USA (for some reason) being twice the price of a Pi3 B that drives it ! On the other hand it comes with the board and parts to connect the Pi to it so you only need a case. Going to look for cheaper 7" touchscreens as it is a great package for a Pi once the case is installed to protect it (no "glass" screen protectors seem to be available specifically for this Touchscreen yet, but then again it is probably not going to see rough service !!
The seller's should Note that the Pi is a Registered Charity in the UK (and it seems someone is making a bit instead of being charitable - perhaps we should source them elsewhere to get the price down but the quality is good and it is an acceptable purchase).

So I ordered a replacement and that too has poor backlight bleed, not quite as bad as the original but still poor also the viewing angle for the screen is very poor, it looks quite good straight on but the slightest tilt of the display causes color shifts.
All in all for the money it's just not a very good display, which is a shame because the touch works very well in both Raspbian and Windows IOT.
Apart from that it works fine, does an excellent job of providing a great touch screen for your Pi. You can easily attach a wireless mouse and keyboard with a dongle.
Now to find a powerbank that can provide enough power for both the Pi and the touchscreen, and maybe a couple of speakers. One hint if you also buy the OneNineDesign Raspberry Pi LCD Touchscreen Case then don't don't screw the Pi into the touchscreen until you fit it into the case. The case leaves enough space to get three screws in easily and a little bit fiddly to get the fourth one in to attach the Pi to the touch screen after you have fitted them into the case.
Worked out of the box with latest Raspian on Pi 3B+.
Very simple to connect and configure. (The driver board was already connected on the one I received, just had to connect to the Pi.).
Touch is responsive, works well.
The position of the SD card slot on the Pi makes it fiddly to access when the screen is connected with the ribbon cable. Especially if you have it any kind of enclosure. So you can't change operating envoirnment easily.
This is a bare screen and driver board (no bezel or enclosure).
The screen will first boot upside-down in many available cases. this is easy fixed (Google it) but is annoying :) .
The virtual keyboards with the latest Raspian OS on Pi 3B+ (my experience) are pretty useless, but this isn't an Android phone, so make sure you have a wireless keyboard with a touchpad.
The board doesn't make use of the stacking HAT pins, so requires jumper wires in order to be powered.
The bezel around the screen is unnecessarily large and non-uniform across the top and side edges.
The front glass panel and the screen module appear to have a fragile connection and I question the durability of the entire assembly.
The panel itself is low resolution (800x480), low contrast (it looks washed-out) and has non-square pixels, which results in any interface you design being rendered in a stretched way; circles look like ovals and text appears too wide.
On the plus side, the capacitive touch screen seems to work well enough. The display I received had no dead pixels, and configuration was not required.
However we're now accustomed to modern mobile-phone displays with high resolution and contrast; and this doesn't come remotely close in terms of visual quality. There are numerous third-party displays designed for the Pi that offer similar or better specifications, in a better form factor, at half the cost; so I don't personally think this is a good buy.
I'm waiting for a new revision of the DFRobot OLED display, which is much closer to what I feel this should have been.
I just bought a cheap, 3rd-party OLED display for a Pi for a few quid, and it had better technical documentation than the official display. This, frankly, is extremely disappointing when you're working with an official add-on for a device that is marketed for experimenters.
Having actually got the thing working -- which took quite a few hours with Google and a lot of trial-and-error, it turns out the display quality is pretty good. At the stock resolution text is pin-sharp. There's a good range of brightness adjustment, right down to zero. Touch input is responsive and accurate. Viewing angle is OK, for a small display. It's generally cool-running. Construction seems pretty robust.
However, there are some other oddities, quite apart from the shocking lack of documentation.
It's nice that the Pi can be mounted directly on the back of the display, for experimenting purposes, even if that isn't how things will eventually be assembled. However, if you do mount it this way, it's very fiddly to get the Pi SD card in and out, because it's underneath the ribbon cable.
There are four mounting points on the back of the display, presumably for panel mounting. However, these points are slightly proud of the back of the display. What this means is that if you try to panel-mount the display, and use the built-in mounting points to secure it, the bezel will stand off the panel by about 2mm. This really doesn't look very professional. I'm still trying to find a more elegant way of panel-mounting the display.
There's an awfully large bezel around the viewing area -- if you are panel-mounting, you're going to need a much bigger panel than the viewable area of the display would suggest.
If you switch off power to the panel at runtime, the picture doesn't come back when power is restored. This, unfortunately, puts paid to my plan of having a hardware on/off switch for the panel, to save power. You can still control power in software but, where power management is concerned, there's no substitute for a big switch.
In short, this is a pretty decent display if you want to make a sort of mini-tablet using the official Raspbian Linux distribution and a stock case, and have little concern about interfacing, current consumption, panel mounting, etc. If you want to build something custom, and really need detailed technical specs, you'd probably do better to buy a 3rd-party display which, ironically, is likely to be better documented.
Sad, very sad.

The screen came very well and securely packaged.
There are no instructions for the wiring in the box, but the first article on a web search details what goes where.
Very easy and straight forward!
My recommendation is to install this in a suitable case as soon as you can. The screen is very thin, but once secured would be fine.
Not great on image quality but it does the job. Back light washes the screen out a bit so makes no real dark blacks. It could do with a higher resolution.
