Sometimes there is, and sometimes not! Personally, I don't find the demo 'thing' very related! Some synths I bought without demoing (or just one minute demo and then click the 'buy' button!) but I have never regret buying them, and sometimes I have demoed them more than once and for a year, then I regret buying them!
I don't find regret buying something is a big deal really! Unless regret buying everything! It takes time to know the synth and, more importantly is, to know if it would be useful for me (aka, using it in my music making).
Lately, I bought two synths that I never used! They were cheap and not bad at all when I demoed them, but I just couldn't like their character. They are Circle 2 and Fathom. I regret buying them sometimes, but not a big deal
Synths that I like but I don't use a lot (can't say I regret buying them though!) are: Go2, Sylenth1, Tal-Mod, Synclavier V, RePro, Arturia Lab, FM4 (RE), Padshop Pro, Harmor and Largo.
