Perko or Bluesea? Which is best?

Perko, unless you want to buy a Blue Sea just to risk having it break in less than a year.

It depends, if you just need a switch Perko. If you want the battery isolator type the Blue Sea

Perko is good, but way overpriced. Blue Sea is quality stuff, better in my opinion, and much less expensive. I use it every day.Blue Sea is the way to go. Everything is tin coated copper...just like the better marine boat cable . This stands up to salt water enviroment way better tha non tin copper.

You don't really need the field-coil circuit if you can remember not to move it to the off position while the engine is running. Most battery switches are make-then-break designs so that as long as you avoid the off position, you won't fry the alternator diodes.

Blue Seas did have a run of switches that broke easily if you over tightened them. They replaced them all free of charge. Newer versions are fine. My last boat had a Blue Seas add a battery system for 5 years without any problems.
