What do you think is the best software evaluation period?

I often download a trial then a customer calls or something else comes up to keep me busy and by the time I get back to it my 30 days is up.
Would be nice if something would just count how many times you actually started the program and give you 15 times.

You need to find another way to offer it, one that isn't specifically tied to a particular time frame.

I have been put off so many different programs because the trial ran out before I could properly evaluate it. If the trial runs out before I can properly evaluate the product, then I will not buy it.
Forget a time period. Evaluation should be on a specific number of times you use the product.

Two years ago, probably I would said 6 months because I use to download many free and trial software, but lately I'm to busy doing my pages and reading AWB to learn more, so now I say that 30 days is enough time for me to evaluate any download a trial program I find.
What I do now is, if I come across a program that looks interesting, first I will bookmark that page and then if it is a time trial software I will only download it on the day that I think I will spend some time on it and normaly in less than 10 days I decide to buy or not to buy it.
Few months back, I buy two diferent script programs that looked good when I was evaluating it but after I paid for them and went to use them on my site, they turn out to be lemon's so I had to do lemonade with those script's. (as is, no money back guarantee) at least they cost me less than 20.00 each.
Now I only buy software on the net after I see various sites using it, if a vendor on the net don't show me live working examples from previous customers, they will not get my money.
