Stuff like hi and low speed compression and rebound adjustments can make washboard disappear for example.
+1. Adjustments are good. My last shock was a simple emulsion shock with adjustable rebound from YSS. It worked well enough and for the money it was a great value, but from the day I bought it I felt that it needed a bit firmer compression damping. That kinda ticked me off. I'm now a believer in shelling out the extra bucks to get all the adjustments possible.
