Monitor Hood Pros and Cons

Is a monitor hood or an anti-glare film right for you? Here are some ideas to consider as you make a decision.....

Monitor Hood Pros - The benefits of a monitor hood versus an anti-glare screen protector
Image Clarity A monitor hood cuts down glare without compromising image clarity. while high anti-glare screen protectors can cause pixeling and decreased image clarity.
Color Calibration A monitor hood allows for accurate color calibration. while anti-glare films can cause decreased image quality and may inhibit proper color calibration.
Privacy Monitor hoods provide an ideal amount of privacy for computers adjacent to each other. while standard anti-glare films do not provide privacy. However we do have Privacy Filters as well to help with privacy issues.
Eye Fatigue & Glare Reduction In Ambient Light A monitor hood aids eye fatigue and glare reduction by eliminating ambient light from overhead and side light sources. Anti-glare screen protectors allow for glare reduction and relief from eye fatigue, but do not reduce ambient light from hitting the screen.
Weather-Resistance An indoor-outdoor monitor hood can get wet and holds up well to sun exposure. Screen protectors, privacy filters, and office monitor hoods are not suitable to exposure to moisture and direct sunlight.
Monitor Hood Cons - When a screen protector makes better sense than a monitor hood
Size Hoods are limited in size to monitors and TVs up to 46 inches for office hoods, and up to 96 inches for indoor-outdoor hoods.. while anti-glare screen protectors are available for all flat screens up to 100" diameter.
Protection A monitor hood does not shield a screen's surface, therefore cannot prevent scratches or smudges. while screen protectors shield screen from scratches, smudges and other wear and tear.
