Name one thing that you value the most in 3D filament. And why?

First, it has to work. It can't have voids or foreign particles and it'd be really nice if it was dry when delivered so it doesn't have to be baked before printing (although not at the expense of cost).

Then, I look for lowest cost. With PLA and ABS, we're not making earth-shattering parts, and the high cost of filament (especially compared to raw pellets) limits utility.
