True enough.  And yet one of those "you should do it my way" posts
really helped me.   

I would have never considered a 30 inch display when I started this
process.   Someone suggested it in a reply to my original question and,
with an open mind, I went looking.  Lo and behold, it makes a lot of
sense, for a number of reasons.

2 big monitors side by side would look like this.

In my opinion, that doesn't work well.  One of them needs to the primary
display and the other needs to be angled off to the side.  With big
monitors, (27+ inches) I think that is clumsy.  

3 of them are even worse.

The only way I could see making use of that screen area is with a roller
chair moving side to side.

This is what made sense to me.

Its still a dual monitor setup and it has the advantages of a huge
primary monitor.

Like I said, I'll let everyone know how it turns out. Its a free world.
They are free to disagree.
