Has anyone ever been a test/pilot user for a product?

I am thinking about being one for "New Trent" because I bought a product from them and love it. Inside the package was a letter saying how I could be a test user, so I emailed away and I was accepted to be one as long as I review the product in a timely manner. Does anyone here have some examples or stories of them being a test user and how they liked it?

when i was a kid ai participated in a taste test for some new kind of cereal.. we'd get these all white boxes of cereal in the mail which we would eat and then fill out a survey on and send it back.. the stuff was really good. don't know if they ever ended up selling it or not.

I did for Orbit gum when it was re-released in 2001. Was but a wee lad at the time.

I'm on test panels so I've tested products like water bottle designs, tissues, soap dispensers, razors etc. Not all that exciting. It's fun getting free stuff to try. I'll probably get to test Mists of Pandaria when it comes out as beta, because my boyfriend bought the one-year annual contract for WoW which says it includes access to it.

You'd think, but actually, I play as much or more than he does. I'm his cash cow. He got me into WoW when we'd just started our relationship. It holds a very special place in both our hearts because of it :3

I got a pilot for a tv show. You could only watch it once it dressed itself as it played then you did a survey.

I used to test custom ROMs for the more advanced devs back when I had my Fascinate. It was pretty fun.

I got to try this new kind of Twizzler once when I was in Hershey Park. They were terrible, and I'm quite thankful they never made it to store shelves, or if they did I don't remember them.

If game betas count, I was in the Beta for Call of Duty 4 while they were still in the friends and family stage. Was also in the Little Big Planet beta.
