Can anyone recommend a low-profile LCD character display?

I've been prototyping using some I2C interface displays bought here in the UK and distributed by Midas Displays. In the US Newhaven have similar parts. Everything was fine until I took the prototype to the customers site on Friday and the display wouldn't work. I've just swapped in a brand new display and still it's not working. The display code hasn't changed and looking at SCL/SDA with a logic analyser the data on there ties up with the code.
It's possible that the 1st display suffered in transit but the second one? It's shaken my confidence in them a bit. Hence my looking for alternatives.
I'm not worried about the interface type. SPI/I2C/4-bit parallel are all fine but they must be reasonably priced at around Â£5/$7.5 in 25+ quantities.
And they MUST be low-profile.
