Log analysis can sometimes tell you more than a survey; however it requires
clickstream analysis, and limited cognitive modeling.
User studies with eye tracking can be very revealing ( especially if you
trust a model like EZ-reader to proxy for cognitive load ).
EEG can also give very useful results, but is intrusive and distracting.
OTOH if you add a complaints button you will never lack for feedback.
(Actually, an oops command for reporting mistakes worked well in production
in the 80s at (I think ) UPenn.
