Mono is usually more sensitive.  If I were specifically choosing a camera to be a guide cam then I'd definitely go for mono over colour.

The original QHY5 is similar to the current QHY5-II.  Same sensor, different housing and different firmware.  Lots of people have used it successfully for guiding so it's certainly not a bad choice to buy second hand.  If I were buying new though I think I'd probably take the QHY5L-II colour over the QHY5-II mono.

I went for the qhy5ii colour but ATM I don't have any intention of guiding. Messing about with filter wheels while recording Jupiter images where rotation can take effect after 5 mins or so seems too much if a faff
