What's a good alternative monitor for the new Mac Pro?

Bob from Des Moines, IA
New Mac Pro

Bob is buying the new Apple MacPro. He was thinking of getting the XTR monitor, but he's not high on paying $1,000 for a stand. Leo says that the monitor is really a color reference monitor for professional colorists. It's a beautiful work of art, but it's also $6,000. So for 99.9% of us, it's not necessary. But if you're doing video, you're going to want a very color-accurate monitor. Apple will likely continue to sell the LG UltraFine 5K monitor as well. It's expensive as well, but not nearly as much as the Apple monitor. Leo suggests getting two less expensive monitors or one wide monitor. Asus and Dell both make very good extra-wide monitors: the Dell Professional 27" is $640.
