As you can no doubt tell, PC Perspective got a HUGE and much needed facelift over the weekend to what we are internally calling "PC Perspective v4.0".  I know there are still some kinks to work out and we are actively addressing any feedback from our readers in this comment thread.  

But we want to celebrate the launch of the new site in style!!  Some of our site sponsors have very generously offered up some prizes for us to give out throughout the coming days...

The first prize: a 120GB OCZ Technology Vertex 2 SSD!!


What do you have to do to win this wonderful piece of hardware?

Couldn't be easier: post a comment in this post thanking OCZ for its sponsorship of PC Perspective and maybe include a thought or two on the new site design (compliments, constructive criticism, hate filled monologues, whatever).  You should probably have a registered account or at least be sure you include your email address in the appropriate field so we can contact you!

We will pick a winner tomorrow and move on to the next hardware that finds its way to PC Perspective offices.  Good luck and thanks for reading!!

Great site redesign. Winning this drive will finally allow me to prove that my OCZ SSDs are better than her Intel SSDs.

Thank you OCZ for your collaboration and sponsorship with PC Perspective over the past few years. I have learned an unprecedented amount of information from this site.

Thanks again for the incredible opportunity! \m/

Thanks, OCZ. The new interface is clean and uncluttered, really like that.

Ooooo, pick me! My old 40gb (generation .5) SSD that I have setup in a RAID 0 needs replacing.

Thank you OCZ for sponsoring PC Perspective!
The site looks good, just as I would like to manually/automatically expand the 16:9 display format, is more ergonomic!

OCZ I admit I was shocked when you decided to leave the RAM market to focus on other things, but You sure proved me wrong!! Also congrats on the new digs PC Perspective it makes the site more noticeable and pops a lot more.

Thank you OCZ for the wonderful Vertex 2, I can almost feel it powering up my system as the main boot drive!

Thanks OCZ! Would be nice to have a site layout that is mobile web browser friendly.

April 19, 2011 | 03:03 PM - Posted by Krusher33

Thanks OCZ for the sponsership. I have a 60Gb model and is proud of it. Really could use a bigger one for the main computer and going to put the smaller one into a HTPC. Would love to show off a super silent HTPC build to people!

The site is wonderful. Much better layout than previously. I was completely lost before and never visited afterwards. i just may come here more often now.

Thanks OCZ!

I'm not sure about the main feature flash animation on the home page. Maybe something a little less flashy?

Thank you OCZ for sponsorship PC Perspective!
The website shows good, has nice colors but the fonts can be slightly larger, providing better visibility.

Thank you OCZ for providing this SSD.

The new site is interesting. I kind of liked the old color scheme better though. The text is a bit smaller on links at the top but it's manageable.

Thank you OCZ for sponsorship PC Perspective, I have a Gold edition RAM DDR2 in my computer...
You are helping to spread information more easily through the way you treated subjects.

Thank you OCZ for sponsorship PC Perspective.
Photos are good but I have to use "CTRL & +" easy to read text.

Thank you OCZ for sponsorship PC Perspective.
I think I'll visit more often. Unlike many competing sites, the first visit is important visually. And the site is ok, but neither simple nor too crowded.

The site redesign looks ok to me. Thank you for not using white text on a black background as some sites do. As an eyeglass wearer I always find that hard on the eyes.

Thank you OCZ for your amazing sponsorship PC Perspective.
Very nice and attractive, with little touches can improve the interface (eg size of buttons).

Thanks OCZ for the giveaway support!
I would be glad to display the site in widescreen format on my monitor.

Thank you OCZ for sponsorship PC Perspective. Congratulations, you're on the right track, now the site has a clean, airy.

Thank you OCZ for sponsorship PC Perspective-you have a problem with small font size.

Thanks to OCZ for its superb sponsorship of PC Perspective.
A serious upgrade opportunity, less common, but it will honor. About the rest, only good.

Thanks OCZ and PC Per for the chance to get a nice piece of gear

Thank you OCZ for sponsorship PC Perspective.
Wide display mode would solve the problem of vertical space on widescreen monitors.

I like to inform me and pass more easily over the issues of site design.
The more information the better.

Thank's OCZ for sponsorship of PC Perspective.

Thanks to OCZ for its superb sponsorship of PC Perspective.

A better set of fonts and buttons for high resolution would optimize the view for the readers.

Thank you OCZ for sponsoring PC Perspective! My friend won this exact SSD on Twitter from OCZ and it's lightning fast!

I really like the design of the new site as well. It's very clean and simple, and simple is good.

Thanks again! :]

Hi there.
Thanks for this awesome contest. Site redesign is just fine and I must say I like the new layout.
I just think you should put not so much news, articles and reviews on the frontpage. It takes some time to load..
So just put some of the latest news, and last 10-15 articles on frontpage in my opinion would be just fine.

April 19, 2011 | 07:15 PM - Posted by hunter4u

Would love to test drive one of these things, i am still in the stone ages like the old forum front was. Thanks for your support and all that jazz for the pcper forums.

Thank you OCZ, This site looks and preforms so much better.

Thanks OCZ and PCPer. Hope it's not too late.

Thank you OCZ for making this site possible. Without them and their Podcast, I might be in a ditch.

Thank you OCZ!! We love your support of PC Per! And the new site rocks!

Thankks to OCZ for great hardware in the SSD realm. PC perspective great site design and very nice color scheme as well!!!

Thank you OCZ for sponsoring PCPER! Sorry don't like the new site. The "swoosh" thing is annoying. Site is harder to parse the information quickly.

April 20, 2011 | 10:57 AM - Posted by mbartin

Thank you OCZ for your sponsorship of PC Perspective. The new site design is easier to review for new information, good job on that.

Thank you OCZ for sponsoring PCPER! with great* products! Ryan, please quit giving Josh pints.............he is beginning to slosh!

April 21, 2011 | 09:36 PM - Posted by slugbug55

It might be a good idea to post the winners on the front page so people don't continue to enter. The winner is posted on page 10 for anyone who missed it.

April 22, 2011 | 09:08 AM - Posted by cschmidt74@live.com

Pc Per helps me find the best gear and OCZ is helping make that possible! Thanks so much!

April 22, 2011 | 04:22 PM - Posted by Tzzird

I need this so badly! OCZ, thanks for sponsoring PCPer.com :)

April 23, 2011 | 09:05 AM - Posted by wormy

i think im too late for this one but Thanks OCZ and as far as the site, how about not making me leave the page im on when clicking a link.

April 25, 2011 | 05:03 PM - Posted by agent_bond (not verified)

I am glad to see that OCZ is continuing to sponsor top review site PCPer. I would love to replace my 1st Gen "Cheap-o" SSD with a much larger OCZ SSD. It is because of PCPer and their podcast that I have shifted focus to your SSDs, and they even test them out before I buy (which saves me a bunch of trouble!)

As far as the new PCPer website, the only thing I am not a fan of is how the search works (or lack there-of) when I am trying to find specific reviews on specific hardware. I don't know what can be done about it, but that is my minor feedback, otherwise I am quite happy with the site!

Thanks OCZ!!!!

Thanks OCZ for sponsoring of PC Perspective.
The site is looking kind of average, but it makes its purpose.

OCZ and everyone else keep sponsoring PCPER we love and need all the info Ryan and the gang give us!!
