    http://www.usertesting.com
    http://www.trymyui.com
    http://www.userlytics.com
    http://www.whatusersdo.com (where I work)

    … I hope that’s useful.

    I think nothing beats face to face feedback, this usually takes the form of my friends and family. I feel if you find someone who doesn’t have a design background the feedback is not only likely to be more relevant, but more honest as the person feels more comfortable with you. Posting a link on Facebook is definitely a great way to get feedback fast (which I do sometimes), you just have to take each commenter at face value and assess what you know about their background.

    Didn’t know about some of the user feedback sites you’ve linked. So you’ve provided me with a lot more options to have a look at.

    Cheers,
