Well, the weird thing is that it appears to be the right cable with the wrong QR label, rather than the wrong cable with the right QR label. All packaging and labeling match the cable, but not the QR code. If it is indeed a VANCO cable, rebranded by Monoprice, it is still neither the VANCO USCP model (not the right ends, not the right gauge), nor the correct length (3ft by QR label, 10ft by what I ordered, by the package labeling, and by the enclosed cable). In other words, the only thing in disagreement is the QR label (and it's wrong on the brand, model, and length). Otherwise what I ordered, the package, the labeling, the contents and Monoprice's description/photos all agree.
On the 6 foot cable in the same order, what I ordered, the package, the labeling the contents, Monoprice's description/photos, AND the QR label all agree. And it is the same model cable as the 10ft. Only difference is length. I've already put the 6 foot cable in use since there is no discrepancy with it.
I was hoping to maybe find someone else who had a similar experience. What seems most likely is that HDMI.org sent Monoprice the wrong QR codes for this particular product.
