Apple unveiled the long-awaited successor to the trashcan Mac Pro at the 2019 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), which was largely well-received, as the new Mac Pro provides ample amounts of computing power and custom hardware for video editing, as well as proper expandability, though at a starting price of $5999. Likewise, the 6K Pro Display XDR is well-received among professionals for providing impressive color reproduction and undercutting the five-figure price tag of professional-grade displays.
The announcement that the Pro Stand was sold separately—for the eye-watering price of $999—was met with audible groans in the room, as well as ridicule and derision on social media, as the stand is essentially a well-machined chunk of aluminum.
That being the case, here's a roundup of 10 monitors on offer for less than the price of Apple's Pro Stand. Granted, these will not beat the Pro Display XDR in a head-to-head comparison, but they stand on their own as quality products.
