    I use a mechanical keyboard myself, but to help me inform my clients better, am looking for info on the lifetime of non-mechanical keyboards. Clearly mechanical keyboards (seems the switches are typically rated for 20 to 50 million operations each) should outlast non-mechanical models but I don't know by how much.

    This topic isn't to discuss the other advantages of mechanical keyboards, or for anecdotal experiences. Just durability/longevity comparisons, info, ratings, etc.

    Like how bad other NON MECH KBs can be?
    Just donated my third KB in the last 4 years. It was a logitech wireless KB/Mouse combo. The KB issues started after 1 year of gentle home use.
    I now use mech KBs everywhere.

    I've owned a Das for 1 year of daily use. The action has not changed one bit.

    Have owned a DAS for about 1 month - seems to be getting better with every click!
