The only minor downside is it doesn't handle significant bridging or steep overhangs as well as regular PLA. But that seems to be pretty much standard with these matte PLA's. Whatever additive they use to take away the gloss seems to make the PLA a little gooier.
I just wish they had a military/olive green color in the lineup.
UPDATE: After printing quite a bit with this stuff, I'm still very happy with it, but have discovered that without substantial part cooling , you'll likely get some blobbing, sagging, or other deformations in small/detail features. If you've upgraded your part cooling with something like a petsfang or hero-me, you should be fine. If you're running a stock fan, or a less than optimal part cooling setup, you might run into some of these issues.
This stuff just stays soft and gooey a lot longer than standard PLA.

"Generic PLA" profile in Ultimaker Cura
My initial impression upon receiving the filament was skepticism. The filament itself is more pliable and feels less dense than other PLA when loading it into the printer. Looking at the specifications for this PLA and others made by Polymaker and other manufacturers, PolyTerra is actually a little more dense than standard PLA. This means your printer will need to have slightly more predictable temperatures at the hotend than is usually required for PLA. If you've got a reputable brand and haven't modified the hotend or its related systems, this should not be a problem.
The first couple passes seemed a bit goopy will mild pilling and stringing (this is a temperature control issue), but subsequent layers were impressively smooth. I've had this filament for 8 hours now, printing for 7; 3 separate prints. Zero complaints about quality thus far.
The filament has a nice matte appearance and texture, and requires little post-processing unless you need a polished part. The color is lighter than standard PLA. Brims tear away easily and leave very little material behind at the corner of the brim and the part.
If you have a printer than can achieve and maintain tight control of the necessary print temperatures for PLA, you should have no problem printing with this material. I will definitely be buying this again!
Con: Warping! its bad. I tried varying the nozzle temperatures, 3 different prints, 3 different hot ends, 2 different size nozzles, PEI... plastic build plates... glass... tape on glass.... tape w/glue on glass... cleaning with methanol before printing... sanding the bed/then-cleaning, sanding/clean/tape... slowing the head down to 35mm/s... increasing the bed temp... decreasing the bed temp.... flow rate increase/decrease... silicon boot on/off the nozzle, everything. The larger the part in the Z direction, the more off spec it gets.
Con: Stringing. This is bad... not horrible, but the part requires significantly more cleaning that other filaments I've used in the past.
Pro: Great matte texture. The parts look beautiful (when they print).
Other thoughts (not the fault of the manufacturer): the natural fiber reel turned out to be more problematic that I thought... Since I print my own spool holders, the surfaces of my spool holders (which includes a printed sleeve bearing) are less slippery than other holders, so the spool would seize alot on my reel holder (natural fiber isn't "slippery" and neither is my spool holder). I didn't have this problem with plastic spools, but it turned out to be a thing with this. Again, not the fault of the manufacturer, but its something to consider if you have a similar setup.
Summary: I bought 2 rolls... loved the texture, but probably got about 400grams of parts out of the 2000grams given all the failures and waste.
