The Samsung U32E850R 4k 32" monitor works well for me in games and occasional photo shop editing.

Here's a vote for the LG IPS. Don't even bother going with HDR because there are no games, and windows HDR still sucks, so not worth it.

I have the LG 32UD99-W monitor for 6 months now and its an outstanding panel, with no backlead/IPS glow issues or anything. I expect to keep this at least 3-4 years.

Mostly gaming and streaming 4k I like the darker black of the VA and the price lol HDR is not a must but this is a monitor I want to have for a least a couple of years so having the tech would be nice.

I have the U32h850U and It does not have 4k streaming and that bothers the crap out of me

I would strongly suggest getting a monitor with good HDR support if it's not out of your budget. HDR really is the best thing, along with g/freesync to happen to monitors since the 90's, imo.
Many or most new games do support it perfectly, and HDR in windows works perfectly fine too, including HDR->SDR conversion (it was really bad early on, but I have no issues with it now, a few windows versions later).
It can be slightly inconvenient to switch hdr on/off, and many browsers still don't support HDR playback, but as long as you use for example edge for hdr playback there's no issue. Games automatically toggle it on/off.

More importantly, all the higher HDR certifications require decent blacklevel measurements in the corners, so it more or less guarantees good uniformity and blacklevel for SDR as well.
Personally, there is no way i would use a standard monitor after having used a hdr1000 monitor for almost a year. Even if it was just for 100% SDR use.

think I am down to the BenQ EW3270U 32" 4K and the LG 32UL750-W 32 just don't want to spend over a grand for a monitor lol.

HDR support on monitors without FALD or OLED/etc. is pretty pointless, all you get is that the monitor supports HDR signal input but the screen output is still SDR with internal conversion to SDR of varying quality. Sometimes HDR mode on monitors offers higher brightness that you can't achieve in SDR mode etc. which is annoying as well.

There are plenty options for 32" 4k, mostly VA and some IPS, none with FALD I think, let alone >60Hz.

I would not get VA after experience with 3 VA monitors in 27 and 32" sizes. Not unless you intent to use it as glorified TV only from a larger distance of 1.5m+. The VAs are cheap for a reason.
