    It seems from the description that the first one is TA or QR but the second is only QR.

    They rebranded the same hub as new? Bizarre.

    Is one lighter or new and improved or something?

    I think cosmetics are the only differences. Both are convertible to/from 170/177 and Shimano/SRAM.

    Yes basically. If you read the rebuild instructions its states both hubs are identical.

    If it's the same as the 190mm version, it's pretty entry level. I have one on my son's bike because it's what I was able to get quickly at the time I built the bike. Engagement is pretty slow and it's kinda heavy.
    I like turtles
