    Because most online listings are coming directly from Chinese manufacturers or Chinese companies posing as western companies.. They write whatever on the titles, specs, etc. Can't even trust reviews.

    Alibaba is a wholesaler supplier, where the user is expected to message the seller to get more details. The results for a product search is often just one model of a whole line of products that the seller manufactures. It is up to the user to message back to narrow down what model you want.
    Knowing that, AliExpress feels like Alibaba trying to eBay. Ali sellers are most likely not used to selling single items at a time and the results for a product search could be just one product in the line that a manufactures makes.
    Also, us North Americans are pampered when it comes to assuming electrical standards,
    Or I'm full of s***.

    4:20 would just like to point out that based on the plug choices and brand name, that blender is probably intended for EU markets, and in here we have 230 V power, not 120 V. Which makes that 2200 W power figure go just under 10 A, which is a common breaker current limit among with 16 A, with which you would be more than fine. That 1500 W number on the specs might be based on the choice of plug you choose above. So that power might just be limited on 120 V power grids but it might still actually be a 2200 W blender.

    2:56 20mb/s it's logically, USB 2.0 can't be more like 20MB/s :P
    it's like IDE-UDMA 2/33 Mode HDD, but slower because UDMA 2 Mode can be 30MB/s
