Given the fixed pixel-space most computers render into, 43-50" 4K TVs give the best readability at native resolution without making individual pixels too obvious. They also have the lowest cost/pixel ratios.

Once 8K TVs come down in price and come in smaller sizes, a 65" one with 125-150% sizing would render all text and lines -- like waveforms -- fantastically.

The advantage of a larger display vs multiple smaller ones is:
a. More flexibility in window placement, especially if able to save layouts.
b. Simpler cabling.
c. Simpler mounting setup, due to lower weight/pixel.
c. Lower power consumption.

With a single lager display vs multiple side-by-side layouts, there is less horizontal head movement, but more vertical, which may be more stressful for some.
