    NEC HDPA27 reviews

    Privacy Hood for NEC 27" Professional Monitor is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 31.
    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 Works great, but not compatible with all NEC 27" monitors I wasn't sure if this hood would fit my NEC EA275 UHD� monitor based on the split answers in the Q&A about it. I did end up ordering it, and it doesn't exactly fit the EA275, as the EA275 doesn't have matching groves and is too narrow for the adjustable parts of the hood; however, it was pretty easy to MacGyver it to fit using some finesse and gaffer tape. It works great, as long as you don't plan on taking it on an off, too often for transport.� Now that I have it, I love it. Just wish it wasn't so expensive for something I had to secure with gaffer tape.� If you do need one and you have a compatible monitor or willing to use gaffer tape, I do recommend it, as it makes color correct work much easier.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The privacy hood puzzle The NEC privacy hood is a good product and works as described. The problem is that the directions are in several languages and the type is so small you can't tell one from the other.� It is fairly obvious how the parts go together, but the sequence of assembly is not.� Once the hood is put together and mounted on the monitor it is fairly solid, but until it is fully mounted it is like a floppy cardboard box that hasn't been taped up.� All in all a good product that does the job it was designed for and is made of good materials I would recommend this product to anyone doing photo editing or other design work on a computer.� I use it for both photo editing and doing CAD design and it has reduced glare significantly.

    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).
