I just want to know if it has issues with ghosting?

It doesn't, and the XG2401 is slightly slower than the AOC newer 144hz Viewsonic TN panels.  The VX245 has less overshoot and some faster transitions which makes it better overdrive wise.

XG240R Measurements by PRAD

Such minute pixel response time differences are irrelevant to 99.99% of users, but the VX245 is cheaper and more accurate and consistent preset color accuracy wise.  I know since I received one today and measured the color presets as well as checked for dark scene banding and ghosting with the Ultra Fast Response Time setting.  It does not suffer from horrific dark scene banding like the Dell S2417DG, S2716DG and XG2402 (expect the same from the XG2401), but there is a little bit which is normal for a TN.

The stand is very wobbly and it of course looks awful compared to AHVA/IPS/PLS, though it does not suffer from contrast, gamma and uniformity loss at 144hz unlike most 144hz TN panels including the XG monitors.  If you can afford the VG279Q get it, especially if upgrading from a 60hz monitor.  The VG279Q is fast enough, and faster pixel response times requires vastly sacrificing image quality.

I am upgrading from my XL2411T which got color lines after 5 years.

Hm, to be honest, now that you reassured me, I find myself struggling to justify double the price just for colors.
I now have a choice between
VX2458 for 170 new, xg2401 for ~140 3 months used, xg2402 190 like new

edit: just ordered the vx2458, lets see :)
