At the discussion forum on www.tcoyf.com, there are some posts about how many pg women will get BFPs on each given day.
Here is the deal.
The egg will implant between day 7-10. Thats average. I am sure, and have read, it can implant a bit sooner or a bit later. It happens.
The hormone levels that the tests test for will not show up until the egg has implanted. So you can test, techincally on day 7 I guess with a sensitive tester. But if the eggy hasnt implanted yet, you arnt going to get any sure result.
It sure is hard waiting though!...Buy a bunch on ebay for really cheap and just pee on one every morning until you get the BFP lol. That way it doesnt at least cost you a lot of money and you satisfy the desire to piss on a stick lol (thats my plan at least lol)
So there's really no benefit to testing early because if it's negative, it might not REALLY be negative, so you'll end up testing later again anyway. My vote is to wait until you know you can believe the answer you get, otherwise that's just too much to obsess over.

Anyway, I re-read their info on them and didn't realise that they detect an even lower amount of HCG than the FRER! Thats not good for my willpower. I might have to take one tomorrow morning (9dpo!)
