YBUY.com is a new Netflix-like service for gadgets that lets members “try” an array of home electronics before committing to purchasing them.
Simply sign up for the $25 per month subscription service and then pick any product offered on the site. YBUY will then mail it to you free of charge, and allow you to try it out for 30 days. If you like the product, you can buy it, with your $25 monthly fee going towards the price. Otherwise, you can send it back when you’re done (again, for free).If you want to skip a month you can, with zero penalty.
But what are you getting? Is it really like Netlfix Streaming, where you can only get the gadget equivalent of weird documentaries and foreign films? A glance at the site shows you’ll have plenty of high-end goodies to choose from, like the latest iPad, Xbox 360, or Breville’s Barista Express. Currently, they’re limiting their signup rate, so you’re going to have to wait awhile before getting in.
