View Full Discussion [Edit: in spite of my comment below, it looks like this drop is - and was - for the 1st gen mCable only. Since originally posting this comment both myself and others have purchased this on subsequent drops - receiving the 1st gen cable. So, MD has the photos and description correct, but appears to have the serial number(s) wrong.]
As of today (Apr. 24, 2018), this particular drop is for the 2nd Gen. mCable: the mCable Ultra.
@TheBowArrow Looks like I owe you an apology for correcting you on the version of this cable (should have checked more thoroughly - my mistake).
Finally had a derp-moment and realized I could just Google the model number from Massdrop's order page to clean up this confusion. *In spite* of the fact that every image on the drop page is of the 1st gen. "Legacy" mCable, all 3 cable length options and their respective product numbers point to the 2nd gen. mCable Ultra.
[At least, according to Google and Rakuten. Links follow.]
Apologies for any confusion my original "corrections" caused. (Now, watch them ship the legacy cable...)
I just got my cable and it is 1st gen =(. Is there a reason why we are getting different products.
I made a later comment that I went ahead and bought one on the last drop as well - also received 1st gen. I'm assuming this means that TheBowArrow looked at the serial number (as I did) to try and verify which gen of cable this drop is for.
At this point, I'm pretty confident saying this drop is only for 1st gen cables, and MD probably has the wrong serial number listed.
Not sure if it's any consolation since the cable isn't 2nd gen, but it seems like there isn't any randomness to who is receiving what. It (currently) appears that everyone gets 1st gen.
