As a writer, I type a lot. I suppose any cheap keyboard might last as long as a Keytronic but the cheap ones are a lot harder on your fingers. Everything is spaced well on the Keytronic, not crushed together so you hit 2 keys by mistake. This is a pleasure to use, not an annoyance and it's my 2nd one so I know something about it.
I've gone through 4 of these over the years. The ergonomic "fit" is wonderful for someone like me who works on computer all day. However, the less than "excellent" is because I'm on my 4th one for little quality issues, like the last one got a broken lift-leg on the backside, causing it to rock and not be the right angle. Seemed very flimsily made and so top quality is just not there. I would have LOVED to report here that I've only bought one.
My only complaint with this keyboard is that it is shorter than my previous HP keyboard. the QWERTY section is a full inch shorter and overall it is 1-1/2 inches smaller ,which is two columns of keys, which takes some getting used to.
