I think oldest device that I still use daily is my 24" monitor (Samsung T240), bought new in 2009 (1920x1200 60Hz).
If it's about inside of my main PC... that would be my Seagate 2TB drive (6,5k+ start/stop cycles with 39k working hrs.), bought new in 2011 [ST2000DL003].

The seagate disaster started with 7200.11 generation, i think i also had one 7200.10 and maybe an even older 120GB one...
Well I'm glad I got it when I did then. The thing is still in my pc, which is on for about 16 hours a day... A couple years ago I started giving it permission to go to sleep though, lol.

Probably my pumps now, how long do 18watt Laing DDC pumps typically last 20 years?.

They're 5 years old now I think maybe older.
I have a couple that are 10+ years.

That was likely a good idea. Have you troubleshot the drive further?

For the seagate drive? I did some by myself and with seagate's representative by phone.. but I don't see any solution to it. Now I'm just using the drive for unimportant data.

my single one is nearing 19+ years and my dual is going since 13 years.

The oldest piece of hardware I use is my Logitech G510. Even though there are some swanky mechanical and ARGB in the space (the 510 is already RGB), I can't get past the LCD screen and macro keys for Action RPGs (up to 20 spells) and any other Game that is supported by the keyboard and there are a lot. The other reason is value I got the G510 for $99 Canadian and it was a combo that included the G700 mouse which has abysmal battery life but is one of my favourite mice for feel and comfort.

How are your temps? I find it interesting that AIOs that are that old are still functioning. This was a new tech my Nepton 280 is still going strong.

When i was doing the Uniengine Benchmark recently i was reaching around ~56c or so. I have been out of the loop on whats a good temp for a while so i dont know if this qualifies as a good temp or not.

I have a Creative Inspire 4.1 surround kit that still works. Well, I’ve lost 1 of the speakers, but it still sounds great otherwise. I can’t recall when I bought mine, but they first started selling in 2002.
View attachment 156470
heaps of wires not shown in product photo.
I bought mine in 2004 or 2005 and had them when I lived out in the boonies, on Cavendish Gulf Rd., from September 1, 2004 to March 5, 2008. Then in early-March, 2008, I was glad to get out of that tiny house that was surrounded by trees and in one of the chillier spots. But got rid of them by sometime in the 2010s.

Oldest part I have still in active use is my IBM Model F 122-key keyboard, at over 35 years old (it's older than me!), but I didn't get it until 2013.

The oldest part I bought new that sees use on my main machine would be my Ducky DK9008G2 that I got in 2011, but it only sees irregular use (for some games I really prefer linear switches over the tactile, clicky ones in the F).

That makes the actual oldest, continually-used part I still daily my RAM: 4x8GB DDR3-1600 CL9 Corsair Vengeance I got in 2012. It's the only part that's in active use from my move back to desktops after a few years with only a Core 2 laptop, evyrything else having been retired (including literally everything but said ram from my 2012 3570K/GTX670 build).

I guess my oldest still running hardware is my Ozaki Nuke 3 5+1 system, although I'm just running it in a 2+1 setup. Don't like all the cables around my room.

Klipsch Pro Media 4.1 setup which I remember we used at a LAN party playing CS 1.6 in a school gym when my brother worked in the schools IT department. We used them in a 2.1 setup and left the back speakers at home. Even in 2.1 hooked to a projector, those speakers filled the whole gym watching Blade. Best speakers I have ever owned. Never have had a problem with the subs internal amp as I know some have, although the crackling volume control infested my pair as well as my brothers over time. I know there are fixes online for it. These days I use my Sony 1000XM4's almost exclusively (married life) so hasn't been high on the list to tear down and get into.

Runner up, PC Power and Cooling 910W Silencer PWS. Its been through 3 or 4 builds. I have blown out full blown monstrosities of dust out of that multiple times in its life when I leave it neglected for a year or so. I dont know what that 80MM fan is in that thing, but it still runs whisper quiet to this day. I have had 2 sets of case fans destroy themselves in the same amount of time as that 80MM and its still going no problem (my desktop is always on 24/7). From back in the days when cable management didn't mean anything. Its cables are sheathed in black mesh but that's it. Not modular so mass cables all over the place, which i tried to tame with zip ties where I would say I was semi successful. Heaviest load it ever had was a loaded up 4790k, 32GB Ram, SLI Strix 980's, ran it all without a hitch.
