In terms of non Apple products, are there any decent alternatives to the iMac display with the 5K?

I'm a Apple user, so I'm kind of bias :whistle:

My advice:
Don't be concerned about a display that offers "power delivery".
Instead, get a power brick or other device that satisfies that requirement.

If you do that, it will greatly "open up" your possible choices for displays...

What's the purpose of having an iMac motherboard/display then?

Why not have bought a desktop and an alternative display?

I know Philip Bloom the cinematographer uses an iMac, but has a separate monitor for colour grading, because Apple monitors aren't as accurate as the really high end ones. And then also a large TV for previewing things full screen.

Here's his setup . He promised to do a video about it, but he hasn't yet, so I'm not sure about the exact models.
