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!!

It's great to see companies at the forefront of consumer technologies like OCZ embrace the forefront of new media communications and sponsor sites like PC Perspective. Sponsorship like that helps sites like this do the new and updated 'revamp of V4.0' that looks fresh and clean.

Without business partners coming together like this we don't get awesome service like this... so thanks!

Thanks OCZ! I own one of your power supplies, and I lost a SATA connector. I sent a request in and got a new one in almost no time! The only thing I don't like about it is that it's only 500W! Anyway, great products.

Website? Pretty awesome, but it needs to be integrated with the forums more. I have 2 accounts on PCPer now.

Thank you OCZ for the sponsorship. The site redesign is definitely in the positive direction--the site looks very modern.

Thank you very much OCZ for supporting one of my favorite tech websites: PC Perspective!!! I also am pleased to say I love my 60GB Vertex 2 SSD drive!!!

I bought a vertex 2 based on your/Allan's review. Within 2 weeks it died, completely inert. I thought I was alone, but then I re-read the reviews on Newegg for it. It is a RAMPANT problem! My SSD is being sent back to me from Newegg, as they would not replace it without the UPC(sent for rebate).

OCZ said they have a newer firmware, but that does me no good, as it must be installed to the host (C:) drive, from within windows. Can't boot, can't update.

Please post something and alert people of this problem. I will try and e-mail y'all too.

I love the new look. Keep up the good work.

Do I need to re-register my nick? can't login.

Thanks OCZ. Can't wait to see what you do next. Good job surpassing Intel's offering in the 6Gb/sec space.

Ryan, I love the new design. Color scheme is unique and pleasing on the eyes. Just keep the green to a highlight color only. Keep up the good work.

OCZ rocks..I already am using their 6GB DDR3 1333MHZ GOLD memory kit for my X58 system and works well. Thanks OCZ and PC Perspective!! I like the new site but just have to get used to it and love the TABS on the top which makes it easy to find things like the ALL important HW leaderboard and SSD Decoder (both are my favorites) for this site. Keep up the good work!

Very nice, this would be my SSD boot drive. I hope will be me the winner.

Thanks OCZ for sponsoring this great site.

I do love this new site layout. As a fellow Drupal geek I do like what you have done here.

Thanks OCZ for supporting PC Per!

Like the new site design. Not overly cluttered. Easy to navigate with the nav bars on top. Fast loading.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks OCZ for the sponsorship of PC Perspective. New site looks great.

Thanks OCZ, I've been doing a lot of research lately and I intend to actually buy an SSD from you guys.

PC Per, great job on the site design, I like the color scheme. It's easier on the eyes and to navigate as well.

All the best and keep up the great work.

Much thanks from Singapore.

I fear change expect when it's a super fast SSD by OCZ.

Thanks OCZ for the support. I'd also like to thank them for the new SSD, but that may be premature on my part.

Excellent new site guys! I'm sure OCZ drives like the one they and you are giving away helped make that all possible.

Thanks OCZ!!!! Great drives with GREAT Speed!!! Keep up the hard as rock design!
Thanks to the PCPer crew for some Awesome reviews! You guys ROCK!!! The new web site is cool, It may take me awhile to get use to it. 1st impression is fresh :D

Thanks ocz for offering up such a wonderful product as the prize!! As for the site, I'd like to see more recent pcper articles on the top page. Its now only 3. Would like maybe 5 or more.

April 19, 2011 | 12:58 AM - Posted by redcandle

Thanks OCZ, love your products!
PCPer - Your new website looks all cluttered, esp on my widescreen monitors!!!!!

April 19, 2011 | 01:14 AM - Posted by mrbluefin

New layout rocks, great color scheme. I'll have to dig around a bit before I can really give any kind of constructive criticism. I've been an OCZ supporter for some time now, first was ram, then a 60gig SSD, stuff just works! 120 gigs would be awesome!!
