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!!

Thank you OCZ for sponsoring PCPER! with great* products!

As for the new PcPer site design... it is new and refreshing but felt some what slower to load than old out dated site.

Hope PCPER will tweak things as it goes on.

Thank you!

by the way... i know it's a podcast but i wouldn't mind seeing video uploads aswell more often than not.

Thanks, OCZ! I'm liking the new PCPer site. Much better than the old design.

The new site looks great. Thanks to all the sponsors that keep PCPer going. It's great to have a website/podcast that keeps us (i.e. the hardware heads) coming back for more.

Thank you, OCZ Technology, for your sponsorship of PCPer! The site looks fantastic. I'll need to spend more time on it before I can offer any criticisms.

Love the new site design. PCPer always keeps it classy. Thanks to OCZ too for sponsoring a cool giveaway too. I think OCZ is my favorite hardware company to deal with because they make good products and then stand by them. Kudos!

Thanks for sponsoring PC Perspecive. New design is a breath of fresh air. No doubt bugs have to be worked out. Would it be possible to use the same userid and password for the website and the forums?

Thanks to OCZ for sponsoring PC Perspective to help make this all possible!
The new site design is much improved over the old one, while i am used to the old one, this should not take to long to get used to. I like that the most recent reviews are easy to find, it makes coming to the site easy to spot whats new in between listening to the PC Perspective Podcast!

I really have no bad things to say about OCZ. They've always had great memory, and now they make amazing SSDs. The speeds offered are fantastic

I would suggest that the selector for the top five news articles on the home page be moved slightly towards the bottom-right to not cover up the images.

The new logo and base site layout are great; a good improvement for focusing on news. OCZ, you're pretty awesome. I have an OCZ ssd in my work machine and it just flies; it's significantly better than the 10k rpm hard drive I was working off of before. My criticism: The radial story selection UI on the main page is distracting and a little unweildly.

Thanks OCZ for sponsoring PCPER. I just installed an OCZ drive in my desktop and I've been looking for one to install in my laptop. I've been very happy with the drive.

Thank you OCZ for sponsoring PCPER. OCZ makes terrific products like the Vertex 2 120GB SSD you are giving away.

I like the new web layout, it's very clean looking. I like the green tabs, it makes them stand out. How about adding a video tab and put all your video reviews there? Just a thought.

oooo... vertex SSD. so sweet. The site thats its on is even sweeter :). Only thing on the site it the homepage headline flashes may need to be longer. Feels like they switch too fast. Looks good overall tho

OCZ, thanks for sponsoring PCPer.com

When i think of fast, affordable ssd's i think of ocz. i'm loving the new pcper design too. i especially like the leaderboard and realtime pricing links!

I think the roundedness of everything is a bit overboard but still a huge improvement over PCPer 3.0.

That's for sponsoring the great stuff at pcper OCZ. I love the layout of the new site as well as the new colors. Only criticism was the leader board was not complete at launch, but looks fine now.

I have used OCZ ram for yrs and I'm glad there a sponsor for you. The website is looking good.

Awesome giveaway! I am glad that OCZ has recognized that PCPer is a perfect match for their sponsorship. Thanks OCZ.

So far I'm digging the redesign's restructuring of the content and the good layout. Kudos to the team for their hard work on it!

Thanks to OCZ for supporting PC Perspective.
OCZ, great tech products, and PC Perspective, a great tech review/info website, a match made in heaven!

PS I like the look of PCper v4.0
Keep up the good work.

Thanks OCZ, still love my gen 1 agility drives. Love the new site design too.

Thank you OCZ for your support of PCPer. I'm loving the site refresh - I would often refer people to PCPer for reviews and news and the site design was not reflective of the quality of the content. It is good to see your sponsors stand offering up prizes like this and they must be happy as well that PCPer has updated the site as well. Keep up the good work guys, and thank you sponsors - know that if there are two vendors with similar products I generally go with the ones that support my fav site - so your sponsorship does work.

Way to go OCZ! Keep em coming!

OCZ is clearly the SSD market leader. I own a 120GB vertex 2 and I just love it.

April 18, 2011 | 11:43 AM - Posted by Chunkmeister

Awesome! OCZ for the win!

Thank you OCZ for sponsoring the great site that is PC Per.
I love the new design. It finally looks like this site is from 2011. The design was one of the only things I didn't like before but now it is great.

I LOVE OCZ SSDs! Thanks to them for helping make PC Perspective possible. I was already considering buying an SSD and this would really help out. The site is definitely modernized and well organized. The only thing I don't like is that "swoosh" thing on the front page slideshow with the 1-5, but that's a purely aesthetic thing.
