I like the sounds the rotary switch gives you. I hate the rotary switch itself. I find it difficult to twist it during a song and get it where I want it. I have only owned 1 PRS with the rotary switch, I still have it. I much prefer the blade switch, which gives you the same or very similar tones. I have played many strats over the years and am used to the blade. The middle ground for me is the 3 way toggle with a coil tap. I would take a 3 way toggle or 5 way blade before the rotary. I would probably take the blade over the rotary just for the out of phase tones that get into some strat territory.
How About A Single Humbucker McCarty With No Switch And A Single Volume Knob And No Switches or Blades, etc.? :)
Depends on the guitar.

I like the toggle, the toggle/minis, the blade and blade/miinis best, because they're easy to work with and I can switch by feel very quickly. I always know where I am.

I don't have a preference between the toggle, the toggle/minis, the blade/minis and the blade. I guess all of them work for me and are functional, but each one seems to go naturally with different models.
I wonder why they changed over to the blade switch. It is much easier to drill a hole than cut a slot and two holes, although cnc makes this a non-issue I guess. Still, it seems to be and unpopular choice.
I don't mind a blade on a strat or a tele, but I dislike the implementation of the blade on a core PRS. The location isn't the best and I don't like seeing a beautiful maple top sliced through like that.
Toggle with coil splitting capabilities. I don't mind the blade switch for recording purposes, either. I used the rotary switch for years and I've grown to not be a fan of it.
I like the blade, but I come from decades of playing Strats. The blade with the pull-up coil split on the tone pot is really intuitive for me.
I don't mind a blade or a toggle myself, but couldn't get used to the Rotary at all. I think it also depends on what you get used to, what other instruments you are used to playing etc. The biggest issue I have with swapping between guitars is getting used to a different layout. If you are used to a Les Paul type layout with the toggle at the top, a blade anywhere along the bottom is not so easy to get used to.

I prefer mini-toggles to push/pull pots - it's also easier to see at a quick glance what position these switches are in and easier to use with hot sweaty fingers. That being said, its not a deal breaker for me.
Toggle. I hate my blade switch, except for my SS. It makes sense to have it there.

If I was just playing in my house it wouldn't matter, but for gigging simpler is betterer!
