Vented Lens Hoods ~ WHY?

Update, the generic 77mm Hood was no good.
Couldn't use filters or lens cap without removing the hood
So returning the generic
Bought the original from Japan for U$40- free postage

Thanks everyone for your replies. I have temporarily bought a cheap generic hood.
And will just keep my eye out for an original at a reasonable price.
But I have learnt a lot, especially about the vented hoods.

Vented Lens Hoods ~ WHY?

While shopping around for new lens hoods for my Pentax 14mm DA F2.8 ED (IF) (77mm dia) and my DA 18-135 ED AL (62mm dia),
I came across 'Vented' generic lens hoods which caught my eye.
I'm sure the Pentax originals are the best, but prices are over the top for a little bit of plastic.

Has anyone used vented hoods?
And what is the use of vents all about anyway?
I would love to hear your opinions

Yeah this thread is very depressing
The K-3 is the best investment for your expensive glass additives

Stand out in the crowd with your Pentax!

There are quite a few PS books out there.
A large quality bookshop should solve the problem
(What if Adobe offered a REAL manual with their products?)
