Sony 43X750F Conclusion

+Positive
-Negative

+Excellent build quality and dark grey matte bezel
+PWM/Flicker Free unlike 99% of the competition
+Nearly perfect preset color accuracy
+Good calibrated image quality
+Balanced overdrive: very fast pixel response times with no overshoot ghosting
+Excellent screen uniformity (very minor DSE) and no back-light bleed
+Very wide viewing angles suitable for family viewing

-Very obvious IPS glow in the top right corners if not viewed from 5.5ft away which is ridiculous
-Semi-glossy coating variant washes out the display under bright lighting
-Low maximum brightness and semi-glossy coating mandates use in low light
-No YCbCr 4:4:4 support at 3840x2160
-28ms delay
-Inability to fully cover HDTV/REC 709 and sRGB color spaces not acceptable for the price
-Low contrast for a high end IPS panel (900:1 vs 1300:1)
-Very expensive compared to the competition

? Lack of Free-Sync for AMD graphics cards and the Xbox One X

Superior 32" 4K AHVA panel using monitors like the BenQ PD3200U only cost a bit more than the Sony, and offer significantly better all-around performance.  The BenQ is more accurate, has negligible input lag, less glow and a perceived black depth increasing matte grey bezel.  The BenQ EW3270U and LG 32UD59 are also great VA panel using alternatives which are accurate and cost significantly less, but also use matte coatings like the PD3200U.  The Qnix UHD32R uses a almost-glossy or low haze coating is also good, but not great since it's not as accurate as the BenQ PD3200U, has significantly worse build quality since it has a thin and flimsy casing, and suffers from obvious overshoot ghosting or slower pixel response times.  Refer to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 32" 4K AHVA/IPS/PLS  buying guide for more 32" 4K monitor alternatives.
