'Frameless design'....I see Bezels....looks like a frame to me

I think the “glass” goes almost to the edge so this looks better in reality than it does in the pics. Still, not quite frameless I guess

Muddled up product numbers and descriptions somewhere?

The linked webpage says: "It features 27" large viewing real estate and 2560 x 1440 WQHD resolution that delivers every bit of detail." and mentions XG270YU model as does the description above....

If it was 27" would be tempting but 2K seems overkill at 23.8" (the stated size on product title)?

I'd go by the specifications, which states 23.8 inch.

I'm really after this size, G Sync would have swung it even for extra!

Since you're from Lancs I'll help you out. The only advantage to the screen you suggest is.its size. Op's screen has 144hz refresh rate, screen height can be adjusted, freesync (only useful if you have AMD graphics) and lots of other features that make it a better screen.

It's not 144hz, a price premium is associated with that.

imak has already given some helpful advice, but I would just like to chime in and say that unless you have a pretty powerful gaming rig you won't really be able to use the full potential of a monitor like this (in most games, at least). Running 144 fps at 1440p is pretty difficult unless you're playing a really well optimised or graphically non-intensive game like CSGO/League of Legends/any of these kinds of games. That being said, turning down settings will help in that regard.

If office work is your primary concern, then I'd perhaps recommend going for a 27 inch 1440p 60Hz IPS monitor which you'll find for a similar price to the monitor OP has linked. Here is one my dad bought recently and he is very happy with it. 27 inches is supposedly the sweetspot for 1440p, and the higher resolution not only offers a crisp image, but it offers more "space" to work with on the screen. IPS panels also have better viewing angles and colour reproduction than TN (standard) panels, so that's obviously an upside.

Basically what I'm trying to get at is that you a 1440p 144hz monitor (like OP's) is great if you're a gamer running a decently powerful rig, and OP's price is definitely a steal (although that may be because 1440p at 24 inches may not be noticeably better than 1080p at the same size). However, if you don't have a powerful rig/don't plan on upgrading in the near future/aren't a gamer enthusiast, then a 27 inch 1440p IPS monitor, or even a 24 inch 1080p IPS monitor, would serve you a lot better for general (non-gaming) use.
