I read it in the review/discussion section on Hobby King under the Turnigy Plush 80 ESC item. There are a ton of review discussions to read through, so it may be a pain in the arse to find it again.
Even as a neophite electric hobbyist, it sounded strange to me, too.
By the way - I ended up ordering a pair of those ESC's to use with a pair of Cyclone Power 2800kv motors I'm using in the Mig-29 I'm building. I also bought the programming card. Everything went fine in the programming phase, but once I briefly ran up the motors to test the system, one of the ESC's fried.
