I would add that if you have the desktop footprint 2x vertical is a LOT more manageable than 1 quad - quads are tricky - especially for neat alignment.
Agreed. 2 verticals offers more flexibility to 1 quad. You can turn 2 verticals into 1 quad and still have the ability to angle the monitors in if you want. You may not want the angle in now, but you might after working on a flat quad, which is exactly what happened to me. IMO get the 2 verticals to start and make it a quad if need be, but give yourself the option to change it later.
2 verticals also allows you to turn it into a 6 monitor unit by adding another vertical. If you have a quad and want 6, you are stuck ordering a new 6 stand (and your quad being scrapped) or add a vertical to the quad, which may look funny.
