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!!

View Full Size

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!!

That is fantastic that OCZ is such a enthusiast oriented company to be sponsoring a lot of websites and events! According to another computer related website, OCZ also listens to the feedback of their customers and hardware reviewers - especially with the SSDs, and makes the right changes that seem to be consumer oriented!

As for PC Perspective's new site layout, I like that it now incorporates the color scheme of the website, but my one criticism thus far is that the Latest Topics column, and the Latest Forum tab seem to be redundant, since on all three major browsers, whenever I click on Latest Forums, it does not show any results. If they were intended to be the same, you can cut down on the "cluttered" look by putting Latest Topics into Latest Forums.

Thanks OCZ for sponsoring PCper.com, it is a great site. The new front page is awesome, much easier to navigate, can't wait to see the new changes in the other area's of the site.

Wow, I feel like a dummy on the last comment. I took a second glance in both columns and noticed that Latest Topics contains a summary of recent front page posts, as opposed to FORUM TOPICS. I have it in my head to associate Topics as Forum Topics. The lack of content loading under Latest Forums still seems to be valid on all three browsers - Firefox 4, Chrome 12, and IE 9.

I'm liking the new site. Just gotta fix the buggy login. Can't use same login as the forums? I couldn't even register a new login. Oh well.. growing pains, lol.

Props to OCZ. I always look forward to reading about their products and their benches cause excitement.

Thanks OCZ. I've got a first gen Agility and would love to upgrade. The site looks great.

What a great giveaway. Thank you OCZ

I like the new design - Easy to find what you need.

Maybe the ligth green color should be changed into a more "soft" one.

Thank you Ocz for sponsoring PCper. your great products on a great hardware website is a perfect mix. An OCZ SSD would look nice in my system, so random number generator, pick me

THANKS! OCZ for its sponsorship of PC Perspective!!!

Thanks to OCZ for sponsoring PC Perspective and putting that SSD up. I quite like the new site design here too. It seems like the first website redesign in a while to actually improve the site rather than change it for change's sake.

Thanks OCZ for sponsoring PC Perspective. This site is very informative. Glad to see the updated site design as it now looks much more current.

This website is really awesome!! And the prize(s)? Amazing!!! I think I just found a new favorite website! :)

Thanks a bunch OCZ! If I could afford an SSD I'd surely get an OCZ SSD. But the wife won't allow it.

Hadn't really noticed any change to the pcper.com website. Will have to investigate further after refilling my glass with another beer.

Thank you OCZ for sponsoring PCPER for all this time! We know you and love your stuff.. Hows abouts setting us ALL up? No doubt about it- you'd get a LOT of people talking ::grin::

As for the new site make-over - I still need to get used to it and see how well the navigation is - but I DO like the nice clear Captcha

April 18, 2011 | 05:43 PM - Posted by microking4u

I Win!! OCZ you are the bomb! Thanks for supporting PCPer! We love you!

Site looks much more professional! The scrolling front page is a little fast, but so far navigation looks good, keep up the great work!

Now I really need that drive Vertex 2 drive fast ASAP! ;-)

Computers are way to slow without Vertex 2 drives!

Thanks OCZ for your great sponsoring! You Vertex2 SSD is awesome. I read tons of good reviews about it and really would love to upgrade my Laptop with 100% awesomeness. Unfortunately SSDs in general are still quite expensive and hard to afford, but they are worth it!

Thank you OCZ for being here and being a sponsor!

We will see how well this new webpage rolls - so far so good tho. Lets see how it navagates!

Thanks OCZ! Love your products! You guys are always in my systems somewhere (usually ram, haven't got the opportunity to try your SSDs yet!)

The new site looks great, took a bit to get used to the new look since I was so used to the old style, but now I like it alot!

Constructive criticism: My log in still doesn't work! Please make it work! Lol

Thanks OCZ! You're making PCPer a lot more of a pleasant experience just like you're making my PC experience at home a better one. keep up the good work!

the site redesign but looks good so far.

Yo, OCZ is the shizl for sponsorship of PC Perspective!!

April 18, 2011 | 06:03 PM - Posted by jnTracks (not verified)

thanks to OCZ for sponsoring a great show. i'm sure they see the returns on such great targeted advertising in new media.
and PC per isn't going to BS us so we know OCZ is a worth while company.

site has a cleaner look, nav at the top, leaves more room for content over clutter. very cool, everything still easy to find. latest news/forum on tabs now.... i'm trying to find something to complain about but i just can't!

great job!
