The meaning of words change over time, and so does the value of things. For example, let`s take a look at the word apologize. According to Merriam-Webster, the definition we usually go by is an admission of error or discourtesy accompanied by an expression of regret. However, if you lived a few hundred years ago, the same word probably meant the defense especially of one`s opinions, position, or actions instead. Now with regards to the value of things, did you know that aluminum was worth more than gold before the Hall-Héroult process was invented? In fact, it was reported that Napoleon III of France gave a banquet where only the most honored guests got aluminum utensils -- the rest had to do away with, well, `inferior` metals like gold. So how does this relate to our topic today? When we mention the word hybrid, the first thing that comes to your mind is probably a Toyota Prius. Now I don`t know about you, but when I was younger, when we mention the word `hybrid`, it really means a combination of the best of both worlds -- not a car that robs you of your passion for driving in the name of saving gas. In the same way, would you rather have gold, or a hybrid? With the former still in excess of $1700 per ounce at the time of press, choosing gold probably makes a lot more sense. However, it does not take much to change one definition. In the past, we have reviewed both the Cooler Master Silent Pro M 1000W and Silent Pro Gold 1000W. With the top-of-the-heap Silent Pro Hybrid 1050W in our labs today, is it the product that takes back the definition and value implied by the word `hybrid`? Read on to find out!"
