Arrow What hood do you recommend for my 22" NEC Monitor?

PCHOOD seems like it would cover the buttons on the side of the display plus I think it would go a little beyond and hide part of the screen itself wouldn't it? For those of you who have NEC monitors, what brand of hoods do you recommend? The NEC branded hood for my model (P221W) is called the SV-HOOD and seems to be sold only on the US NEC website, I can't find it for sale on any european site and they won't ship to Europe... I'd like one with a trap at the top for easy calibration ideally. Thanks!

Just make your own out of black foamcore.

It's difficult to find any alternative to theirs outside of making your own. I usually try to buy this stuff bundled, because hoods are such a bitch to find. You also need to make sure you don't block the holes along the top, or it will become really warm. The issue with hoods is that they're not a very common accessory.

NEC sells one made for their monitors. You can find it on the NEC website or on B and H photo which also sells some that should also fit. They aren't cheap whether they are made for NEC monitors or not.

I've made mine from black foamcore. Works wonders but for les $.

Used this as a guide.
