I definitely want something made of body safe material and there are certain brands/manufactures that I trust more than others, who have better quality toys.

Size and material are super important to me. I am all about girth.

I actually get off on really strong patterns, I'm all about the patterns. That's why I love the Zini products here! They've got flaws, but I've never seen so many patterns on one toy! Love it! Also material. I'm extremely picky when it comes to materials.

well material is always my first issue, but once I've filtered that out I go solely on LOOKS! I love a sexy, artistic toy, it just gets me in the mood better, and I love to look at them in my collection!

Power level.

Most of the above. Has to be pretty strong, the right size, good materials...and depending on its purpose, it has to be the right shape. Picky, ain't we?

Mostly power, size and shape. But since we have a lot of toys it also needs to fit a niche not covered by the existing collection.

The power and whether or not it is rechargeable. I use my vibes too much to be able to afford batteries.

Power of vibrations, material, shape, size and price. Ever since I bought my very first rechargeable vibe earlier this year, I'm paying a lot more attention to whether it's rechargeable or not.

Power.

Shape.

Ease of cleaning/waterproof.

I don't really care who makes a toy just as long as a couple people I have come to respect claim it to be powerful.

The power level is the first thing...Lots of other factors as well.

Power is number one. Good material is also important. If it's not a vibrating toy then I mostly care about material and shape/size.

Power is my main thing. I was finding that I was ending up with a lot of really similar toys, so lately I've been concentrating on items that were significantly different from ones I already owned.

I definitely focus on the material first and foremost. Safety first.

Second is power, I love some good strong vibrations, anything else won't work. Then, I check the size of the product.

Oh yeah, price. Price comes into play here too.

Power and material foremost. Brand gives me an idea about how powerful it will be. I care about size and texture for insertable vibes. I don't care about too much, but I haven't been able to bring myself to buy a pink toy (stuff I receive to review is another matter entirely).

I actually consider most of the factors listed. The only one I don't really give much consideration to is vibration patterns. I rarely use a vibrator on anything other than a steady high or medium speed, so I can't even tell you what other patterns there are on the vibes I have.

Most considered are material, power source, vibration power to noise ratio.

Power, size, shape, texture, material... and since my collection pretty much feels more or less complete, I also take into account "does it do something different from the toys I currently own?" So I am more intrigued by the new and different stuff that comes out - like the Jopen Intensity or the Stronic Eins, for example.

Power, material, size, noise level, design, look (color), good reviews (it would be REALLY hard for me to buy something that had a lot of 3 rates and lower), also I look for SALES! lol That's not really a thing but if it's not on sale, I'll wait till it is (unless it's one of those toys that are out of stock constantly).

Attractiveness, power level, and material are at the top of the list for me.

Something can have a decent amount of power, but if I don't think it's pretty, I will be much less inclined to buy it.

Power, material and size, texture and color, price, brand, uuuuusualy in that order. A weak vibe is useless to me
