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 like new site. You always have the problem with a new site on finding where every thing is but you all did a great job with the nav so their doesn't seem to be a problem there. I love how there seems to be less stuff it really help with looking through content on thus site. One thing I don't like is the homepage there is so much there it's hard to find what you should be looking at. Over all I like v4.

Thanks for sponsoring PC Perspective, OCZ.

I do like the new site -- the colors especially. I've read elsewhere that there will be a wider version, and I'm looking forward to that.

PC Perspective is the premier site for all my PC and technology related news! The new site design looks fantastic, a nice upgrade on the previous style.

I particularly like the new section labels at the top, making it much easier to find what I'm after.

Without the generous sponsorship from the folks at OCZ, we wouldn't get such a great site to stop and read about the latest news and excitement in the PC world! So thank you OCZ!!

Thanks OCZ for sponsoring this great new website. Have you thought of sponsoring the Podcast too?

I just put the 120 gb Vertex 2 in a laptop and it rocks!

Thanks OCZ for sponsoring PCPER! That SD would go great in my rebuild of my 4 year old system.

I like the site, decently clean layout. Though I don't know about that lime green/blue combo...

Thank you OCZ for sponsoring PC Perspective. I'm enjoying the new design, little more modern feel, much needed when you think about a site all about the most modern PC tech :-).

OMG! OCZ SSD & PCPER FTW! Too many acronyms? :) Seriously though... Thanks going out to OCZ for donating a great SSD to be given away to celebrate the new PC Perspective web site. The new site has lots of content, yet still manages to look clean and organized.

Thanks, OCZ. I'll remember your sponsorship when considering which SSD to buy (assuming that I do not win the contest). I love the new site. One problem that I had was that I was not automatically redirected to reset my password after creating my account. Other than that, it has worked very well.

Thank you OCZ for your sponsorship of PC Perspective. The well-reviewed Sandforce controller and assorted other information I found here was what encouraged me to buy my first OCZ SSD. The real performance I've seen is what will make me buy another.

Overall, I do enjoy the look of the new site. There are a few bugs that are apparent, for example, the most recent forum posts no longer showing, even when you select that tab from the main screen, as well as my account disappearing without a trace when the upgrade occurred. Otherwise, a big fan of the new look, and will always enjoy the content here.

This is me thanking OCZ for its sponsorship of PC Perspective. The site upgrade looks phenomenal

Thanx OCZ.
PcPer page should be more hirez widescreen friendly. I hate scrooling.

Thanks OCZ!

OCZ Always steppin up! New site looks fantastic!

April 18, 2011 | 07:30 PM - Posted by Clairvoyantx

Thanks OCZ. New site has a clean look. Easy to navigate, once you get used to the changes. Like the ability to sort news by most recent/popular/commented. It might be nice to have a pause button on the scrolling headlines. Keep up the great work!

Thanks to OCZ...didn't know you were an official sponsor, just thought those were lucky ads on the pages. Also, your sponsorship works. Because of PCPer and their podcast and reviews, I've decided that my first foray into SSDs will be with a Vertex 2 (or 3, can't decide if I need THAT much speed) and this 120GB model is exactly what I am really close to buying.

To Ryan and everyone else at PCPer, I like the new site. It's nice to look at, not boring at all, easy to navigate, and looks new and fresh. Your old design was good, but was looking a bit dated. The info is still great and that is the reason I come back. Having the site just look nicer makes it easier to enjoy and view.

PS...OCZ, don't worry about this giveaway, if I do win, I'll still be buying one directly to support you for my second computer.

Thank you OCZ for being so generous and keeping the most informative tech website funded. The snazzy upgrade looks terrific, like I needed another reason to check PcPer, great job guys keep up the good work.

Thanks OCZ for the sponsor!!!! Love your SSDs, I have a RevoDrive X2 in my gaming system and a Vertex 2 in my iMac that I modded! I'd love one for my MBP.

The new site is very easy on the eyes and I really do like it. The only thing I find distracting is that sweeping 1/2/3/4/5 design over the main picture. I'd move it to the top or bottom if it were me. Otherwise, great work!!

Thanks OCZ, I have an Agility 2 and you guys have wonderful tech support. I must say the new layout will take some getting used to. The green kind of throws me off, but overall the design looks sharp.

Thank you OCZ, for your support of PCPER. I have a Vertex 2 60GB on my Desktop and it was the biggest performance improvement I have done to my PC short of a complete CPU, MB upgrade.

Looking forward to seeing what you guys do with the recent Indilinx acquisition. Keep em on their toes OCZ.

My thanks to OCZ and companies like 'em that let me keep up with stuff at pcper.com and while listening to the podcast. The redesign is pretty good though the right hand column is extremely .. bare compared to everything else.

Thank you OCZ for sponsoring PC Perspective. Oh and I like the website's new design.
