I am using an "EasyMountLCD" or "Tyke Supply" hex stand. It is two rows, so 3 wide, 2 high.
The quality of the stand is fantastic, which is the norm for this manufacturer.
But the stand is less than ideal, simply due to geometry. The upper row is tilted downward, and the outer columns are tilted both downward and inward. This means the edges do not align at all, which leaves big gaps between the borders.
For a single row of monitors, this is not a problem because they would be angled similarly. So I can't fault the manufacturer.
Since it is just VESA mounts on the back, I considered manufacturing my own improvements for the outer columns (far left, far right monitors - both upper and lower row). I can do this by making a VESA wooden block that would make the monitor come closer to me by about 3-4 inches, and thus eliminating the big gap. But it also would mean that the edges would be closer to me, which is not ideal.
Right now, despite the picture, it is actually very comfortable in this position. The gaps don't bother me, especially since I keep my office pretty dark throughout the day, so the gaps tend to just blend in.
As for distance, if they were much further away, I wouldn't be able to read the fonts. I have lasik surgery and my vision is 20/20 post-surgery, so I don't think it's just me. I would really say the distance for the outer monitors is more or less ideal. The only monitor that is not ideal is the one directly in front of my keyboard, the center bottom monitor, as it is the closest to me. I can't get any further from it physically due to the size of my desk. I would have to buy a deeper desk.

Like Fat Tails i am really astonished too that there are huge screen capacities but there is a lack in all other issues. If you can't find a desk that fit's your needs then go to a cabinetmaker. Some natural light (window) or a view wouldn't be bad. The last pictures looks like you are in a secret mission command dugout and controlling a unmanned aerial vehicle searching for terrorists.
