I have been thinking about switching to a single 43" 3840x2160 monitor. This would essentially give me three 1280x2160 monitors side-by-side, increasing my available space by over 50%. It would also mean those occasions I want to view a spreadsheet with tons of columns, I can use all the space without any bezel in the way.

My hesitation is that the size of the pixels of my current monitors is perfect. I've thought instead about buying a cheap 49" 4K TV which would give me just a slightly higher pixel density than what I have. But my co-workers already think I'm weird for having two vertical monitors - they'd probably think I was completely insane with a 49" TV on my desk.
Meh. I've seen it done. To each their own. Whatever works best for your workflow.
