    Privacy Hood for NEC 27" Professional Monitor is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works Well; Costs Too Much It does what it's supposed to do -- cut down on extraneous ambient light. It fits the monitor it was designed for nicely, and it has a hatch in the top so that a color calibration device can easily be placed on the screen. Assembly and installation were straightforward. But it costs much more than it should. A fair retail price would be about half the actual price. After all, we're only talking about a few pieces of nicely made black plastic with flocking on one side.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ridiculously overpriced I'm not one to complain about pricing particularly when I have a good idea from other reviewers about what I'm going to get. Nevertheless actually receiving the monitor hood I've got to say I was disappointed at the flimsy plastic quality. Given the investment in the monitor it fits on NEC should be selling these for $25 or bundling them with the product.I have an older Lacie 321 that shipped with a much more substantial monitor hood made of aluminum. This is what I'd expect for $. NEC can do better than this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works! I have it on my PA271 and it really does help to eliminate the background clutter so I can focus on the screen. It completely eliminates the reflections of stray light and cast-off. The trap door on top provides easy access to use my calibrator with no fuss. It's well made too! I highly recommend it if you're picky with color uniformity and sharpness. Frankly, it's a bargin for what it provides. A photog's must have! Regards, Dan

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Essential Why bother with anything else at this price. Made to fit the PA series. Assembles easily and stays on tight. There is some exposed plastic (not covered in the velvet black out material) around the top inside of the hood where the two top sections and calibration unit door meet that pick up glare from the screen itself. Aside from that I would have given it 5 stars. A small design flaw, but doesn't effect colour/contrast representation and becomes unnoticeable fairly quickly. A must have especially if you are working in a mixed studio like myself, and don't have control over lighting. It's also more pleasant not working in a dark cave but still being able to distinguish all details in images.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job It's not much to look at but it does keep the glare off the monitor screen and it's relatively easy to set up. The top gate works well to allow access for calibration. Cons: Expensive considering it is just pieces of felt lined plastic. It should cost much less.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthwhile Piece of Equipment The hood comes in multiple pieces and the user must assemble it. Detailed instructions are included. Other than sometimes needing a third hand, assembly is routine. The resulting function is excellent in that the hood minimizes the effect of ambient light on the image displayed. This is important for evaluating color in my photographic images. Excellent product to complement an outstanding monitor (NEC Multi-Sync PA 27 inch monitor).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from well-designed, perfect fit This hood comes in five carefully packaged pieces, with clips to attach. Its clever design provides a sturdy light blocker for the screen. The door for the color calibrator fits snugly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, but not an absolute necessity This well-made monitor hood is very easy to install, and (as would be expected) fits the NEC MultiSync PA271W perfectly. It locks into place securely, and all controls remain unhindered after installation. Despite not being a very substantial hood, compared to some I have seen, the effect on the displayed image is immediately obvious and powerful; a small but completely black void now surrounds the picture. While the visual impact is significant, I am not sure that it has had a major effect on the accuracy of colour editing, but then I consider my lighting situation to be fairly well controlled. In a different situation, such as an office with large windows (and thus, significant amounts of daylight, which will change through the course of the day), I can see that a monitor hood would be essential. The trapdoor for use with monitor calibration units is less inconvenient than I thought it would be; in practice, it has not been a deterrent to regular calibration. Having used this hood for a few months now, I would readily recommend it if your lighting situation is not consistent, but otherwise it is probably not necessary.
