Hope this explanation helps.
Just to further explain the benifits of using a monitor hood. The biggest benifit is more accurate colors being viewed because the surrounding light will not be influencing what your seeing on the screen. Another benifit is reduced reflections on your screen thus giving you less eye strain especially for persons using the computer hours at a time.
There are other benifits that we explain in detail on our web site: www.photodon.com/mgrh.htm
We make and sell monitor hoods and monitor screen cleaning kits.
