Is this a good monitor ? How does it compare to the AOC 24G2U?

Both use the same panel so performance should be similar.

This one doesn’t have the wide colour gamut like the aoc 24G2U right ? Therefore the colours on this ASUS VG249Q will be more accurate?

Yeah, no wide gamut on this one, from what I've heard this screen has less saturated colours than the 24G2U, should be more accurate.

Seems like a great monitor, I'd consider getting one personally but the lack an audio out port bugs me.

Which would be the better option to go for if they were the same price ? The AOC 24G2U or ASUS TUF VG249Q?

It's preference really, they are both really good monitors.

I'd go for the ASUS if having more accurate colours is important.
Heat! I bought this monitor from Amazon UK about 2 weeks ago for £209 (it's now £265!). I love it! I might have been lucky but there were no dead pixels and I don't really see any back light bleed (but then again, I never use the monitor in the dark anyway).
I mainly play Overwatch on it and for me, 144hz makes a massive difference compared to 60hz, I feel like I'm more accurate especially when having to quickly turn around and acquire a target.
The 144hz works over HDMI too so don't need a DisplayPort cable unless you want to use FreeSync over G-Sync.

It uses a normal 'kettle lead' too which is good because there's an issue of some of the boxes only turning up with an EU plug and not a UK one. After loads of 1 star reviews on Amazon specifically because of this, Amazon staff have been manually putting UK plugs in the box but the one I got had the wrong connection type on the other end so didn't fit! Luckily I already had a spare power supply cable around so used that.
I have been looking at monitors for a fortnight to have a second screen now I'm working at home, but everything in the UK worth having seemed to be out of stock and / or prices were ridiculous (e.g. the AOC 24G2U monitor selling for £270 at CCL when it was £100 less in February - most likely why they were the only UK seller with stock).

I decided to order from Amazon in Europe as I've bought PC components from them previously and they claimed to be receiving stock before most of the UK stores. Ordered the AOC 24G2U from Amazon.FR on Friday (29th) and it was dispatched yesterday for Thursday delivery - £188.15 including delivery with a fee-free credit card.

Definitely worth checking elsewhere and checking stock regularly - Amazon.ES and .FR seemed to be the cheapest.

I just went to CCL for this monitor right now. It was 3 in stock when I began to considering it and within an hour 1 gone and I pulled the trigger on it.
You are right - march was a month where prices were like 30% less than now, but I am quite sure, everything will be climbing in the next 6 months and now is just literally last moment to get stuff bought.

Hmm, I don't think so, I think prices will come down as lock-down eases in Asia and across Europe, as manufacturing restarts and new stock arrives. Prices went mental in April as everyone was working from home for an unspecified amount of time and there was a rush to buy monitors rather than being confined to small laptop screens, but hopefully we should see things start to settle in the next few weeks.

I hope so for you and all who want to buy stuff.
