I like the BWU. I like the clickity-flack of the mx blues.

The BWU will match your Death Adder?

K70, not even close.

I'd go with the Corsair. I've heard of build quality issues out of the Black Widow Ultimate.

blues for pure typing, brown/red/black for gaming

Corsair K70 and it's not even close. You would have to be insane to buy a razer blackwidow.

As to which switch, it depends on what you want more. Reds and browns are better for gaming while blues are generally better for typing.

I purchased a Blackwidow Ultimate and I regret it entirely.
