I have 10 engineers working for me and I got them all dual monitors, which they swear by for productivity, but personally I have to admit that I just don't get it. I'm using a single 22" monitor for development, and even that seems too big for me. I'm happiest with a 14" laptop. Whenever I have tried dual monitors I end up with a sore neck from looking side to side, and sometimes I even feel motion sickness (especially on site like Wikipedia where they don't limit the width of the text across the screen). I can't imagine using dual or triple 30" monitors. I'd have to put them on the other side of the room. I'm pretty sure I'm the only software engineer on the planet who would turn down extra screen real-estate.
