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!!

Thanks OCZ! I bought a couple of these drives for work and would love to be able to put one in my machine at home.

Can we get an RSS feed of the "Latest News" section?

Thanks OCZ!

My only complaint about the new site design is that it has a bit too much of a pre-fab feel. But it is functional, and that is what is important, thanks!

The new site looks great.

Honestly I do miss the old site, the layout was intuitive and worked great for me. I am finding it feeling a bit 'condensed' but I will give it some more time before I make cast further judgement. It does certainly look more spiffy though.

BTW - I would love to see a review of the new 'max iops' enthusiast line from OCZ and also some dirt on the revo-drive x3. Because I really want to dump a wad of cash into a product like that... but my pocket books have else something to say about this.

Still getting used to the new design.

OCZ is a great company and contributes greatly to our community. They may even be entering my datacenter soon :).

Thank you OCZ for sponsoring a website that I visit daily for the latest technology news! I love your SSDs and currently have a 60gb agility in my laptop. The added speed and capacity of this 120gb vertex 2 would be awesome! And PC Perspective, I am loving everything about the new site except for the latest reviews section. I liked it better before when I was able to just glance at it more quickly and see if anything applied to my interests. Other than that way to go on the new layout!

Thank for sponsoring OCZ. Also the new site is so much better, it looks so wonderful Feels like the site now fits with the tech.

Thank you OCZ for sponsoring PCPER. Please put out a primer on how best to separate OS and Data. Too much conflicting information out there.

Definitely like the new site. Easier to get around, and much easier on the eyes. Hope you guys are around for years to come!

Thank you to OCZ for supporting PCPer with a super SSD giveaway. Thanks to Ryan and all the guys at the site for all the hard work and super content. The new site format has been fun to get to know and use. One thing I'd like to see addressed is the 'Latest Forum' tab on the right side of the page which does not seem to populate with forum posts when I select it. Congrats on the site make over!

OCZ, good job on sponsoring PC Per.

As far as feed back for the site goes... You're already looking at a bigger font, so I guess all I can do is throw in support for the one guy's idea of having a wide screen mode. There is an awful lot of blank space that can get used.

I love these drives. I have a 90GB vertex 2 now but already need more space. The performance is incredible. Also - thanks for getting the word our and sponsoring PC Perspective.

Thx OCZ! An SSD is the best way to breath new life into a laptop or desktop computer.

I would love to have an OCZ SSD =D. Thanks for sponsoring PCPerspective. It has been the one place I go for my hardware related questions. The website seems good, It's just as functional as the previous version. Definitly more modern looking.

Great design and big props to OCZ for sponsoring the design launch.

Thank you much for the sponsorship OCZ, I love your SSDs, and before that your memory.

I like the new design but if you guys have the time there's some images with some "smudge" feeling.

Thanks OCZ for sponsoring PC Perspective. Like the colors of the website.

Thanks OCZ for sponsoring this awesome giveaway on PC Perspective! I'm liking the new site design, although the colors are a bit too bright than I'm used to... Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing...
