Difference between these two keyboards?

I'm planning to get a new Razer gaming keyboard soon, and I've decided on the Blackwidow.

I'm stuck though on either the Blackwidow 2013 or Blackwidow Ultimate 2013.

There's a $40 difference between the two, and I'm not sure what that's for.

I'm sure it's for some added features.
I would like to caution you how eber on Razer keyboards. They look really nice and have some great features an they have nice lighted keys. They are however hard to clean and there is a coating on the keys that give them a soft feel but I t5hink it's this coating that's the problem.
If they would do away with this coating I would go back to Razer keyboards. I don't know what the purpose is of this coating but it really interfers with cleaning and it can easily wear off.

Thank you for that.
I've also read somewhere that Razer products tend to break a lot, but I don't know - I've owned one of their mouses before and it worked great for me. :lol:

Razer makes great mice and I have always used them , but when I tried the Razor Lycos keyboard that's where I decided to use a different brand. I din't have any issues with things falling apart and the mice have and are great to use but keep the keyboards.
