As you can no doubt tell, PC Perspective got a HUGE and much needed facelift recently 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 seventh (!!) prize is another 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!

OCZ Rulez , about the site, suggestion:
-lately we have developed an ability to get the most info out of a net page by one look, so i suggest add beside the title in home page and other (from latest topics/latest news)-add logo/picture related to that title so i can filtrate the info that interests me be one glimps .
-also u can use between the info title of news / topics different colour not to be to much in contrast and from same tone so that doesn't look like a long text from a big book.
-another idea u can use the free space just in right of the welcome regtangle/ OR just add another tab in title simply "Account" "my profile" something like that and use that hole free space remaining after that for info /advertize
-the pictures have good quality, but can be smaller and maybe add an option to enlarge/zoom so u can use the space around the smaller picture to add more info so that the page have a more compact look , having the info right there also
this are just my opinion , averall a very informative site with all the new info "on the street" , neutral colours easy for the eye and prizes :) keep the good work , Thumbs up.

Thanks OCZ!

The upgrade was much needed :)

OCZ are awesome as always.

Once some of the major complaints have been fixed it would be cool if compatibility with Opera could be looked at. Its really close to being perfect but a few misaligned buttons happen every so often.

Tks for sponsoring PCPer OCZ. Been looking at your SSD products for a new build. Heard of PCPer from the TWIT Network. 1st time @ the site. Nice look PCPerspective.

Thanks OCZ! and PC Perspective! It's nice to see there is still good in the world. Love your podcasts. I think the PC Perspective logo in top left corner could be bigger. Don't be shy. Very tasteful and functional. Could use a couple videstractors

THXs OCZ for sponsoring this site and looking forward to trying out your new SDDs win or lose.

As for the site it looks nice though I see a few issues in terms of some links to the other view sites have bugs with them with '
' appearing in the link like with this one: http://overclockershq.com/peripheral-reviews/splitfish-fragfx-shark-%3Cb... . And the site isn't set for 1080P but for smaller screen size which I have to zoom in and increase the font size to see better on my 23 inch screen. Won't stop me from coming back but is still a little annoying to see every time I return to the site.

Keep up the good work.

Thank you OCZ for sponsoring PC Perspective. It's great to see my favorite quality computer parts manufacturer advertising on the best tech review site/podcast on the interwebs!

Great new site! Fantastic job on cleaning up the site and improving the look, while keeping it all zippy fast! I'm loving the design choice to allowing accessibility with an audio captcha.

Keep up the great work with the site and the podcast PCPer crew!

Sup Ryan, I've installed SSD in my customers machines but haven't had the money to buy one my self. I've used OZ before for system memory. Since watching your podcast/reviews i would buy this product for the future, however winning it would be great.

As for the podcast i look forward to it every week!! Keep up the good work!!

The site redesign brings a tear to my eye it's unbounded beauty completes my soul in a way that I never thought possible.

Seriously though it does look good. Truth be told though I would still come to the site even if it looked like it was designed in the mid nineties with animated gifs and a midi tune playing in the background. I come for the content and you guys very rarely disappoint, keep up the awesome work.

Just a shout out to OCZ as well thanks for putting up prizes.

Rock on!

I would love to win this for my Lenovo laptop.

Where is the search box for the new site?
