PCPer v4.0 Giveaway: Corsair Gaming Audio Series HS1 Headset

Tagged: hs1a, hs1, giveaway, corsair, contest

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 fourth set of prizes is a pair of Corsair Gaming Audio Series HS1 Headsets!

Winners of this contest will be able to choose if they prefer the HS1 USB-based model or the HS1A analog connection model.  Check out the review I linked above as these are some very nice headphones with an MSRP of $99!!

What do you have to do to win this wonderful piece of hardware?

Couldn't be easier: post a comment in this post thanking Corsair for its sponsorship of PC Perspective as well as the worst audio configuration you have ever owned!  Fess up, what junk have you bought at Best Buy for $9.99??

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 the winners tomorrow and move on to the next hardware that finds its way to PC Perspective offices.  Good luck and thanks for reading!!

These babies have just about everything you want on a keyboard and probably more.  Backlight? Check.  On-board audio jacks and USB ports?  Yup.  A FAN??? Yessir.

What do you have to do to win this wonderful piece of hardware?

Couldn't be easier: post a comment in this post thanking Thermaltake for its sponsorship of PC Perspective as well as what you want to see most on your next keyboard.  I want a drink holder.

Friday the 15th, the day PC Perspective burst forth from it's crysalis

Subject: Editorial | April 15, 2011 - 04:41 PM |
Tagged: friday, forum

As you may or may not have noticed the front page of PC Perspective is loading a little funny today.  However we've decided we like it and are sticking with it, hoping it will soon spread to the forums like some sort of positive virus and once it does that the front page will recognize your forum user and allow you to use it on the front page.  It does have one small negative side effect, but the Hardware Leaderboard is expected to make a full recovery very soon, whereupon it will be revamped with the new picks for April.  That one negative effect is somewhat mitigated by the wonderous mutation the SSD Decoder underwent, which offers new ways of viewing it like a Lightbox or pop up window.  If you have any comments, you will be pleased to know that you can now comment on posts to the front page; we do request that comments about the new site design are aimed here, so that we can reference them at the same time.

The Forums are currently unchanged, both in design and in content.  Users having problems with their new kit or simply looking for feedback on their new purchases are still in evidence.  We even have some experimentation in virtualization going on in the Motherboard Forum and you can help with the birth of a new HTPC over in the Video Cards Forum.  You can also grab our 150th PC Perspective Podcast from the obvious tab.

 

Enjoy the new look of our front page, but please don't neglect our Forums as they might feel a little self conscious of their old look!

Welcome to the new PC Perspective!
