The sweet spot for me is 3 monitors.

That's the setup I had, until I moved my primary workstation to a Surface Pro...I have it hooked up to an external USB3 dock (Plugable UD-3000), and it's now running those 3 monitors. With the tablet itself, that's 4 display devices, and frankly, I hardly ever use the 4th one.

That's not to say I hadn't tried it until then--but I had come to the same conclusion; I don't use the 4th one.

All three monitors are 24" 1920x1200; two in portrait mode, the third in landscape. Works well enough for VS and tons of floating windows.
