To figure out how long it would last:
  1. Install WhatPulse
  2. Find out how many keystrokes you use in an average week over four weeks
  3. Figure it out! Divide 50mill by Keystrokes/Week. Convert weeks into years.

As for how long it would last, you find out how much force 5 people who use mechanical keyboards use. Find 5 people who use Cherry MX Red, 5 who use Cherry MX Brown Etc. Then measure how much force each person uses. Next, get different key-switches. 5 key switches to be particular. Put a machine the size of the persons hand matched with their force. Also do the tests in a chamber that is heated throughout the day and cooled throughout the night. Then, weather wear (plastic and key switch expanding and contracting throughout the day) can be measured accurately. Done. It would take a while though.

Camera Kit: Canon 7D, Olympus OM10, Sigma 30mm, Olympus Zuiko 50mm f/1.8, Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-f/5.6, Kiron 70-200mm f/4, & an Olympus T20.

This calls for a project utilizing a solenoid and a microcontroller. Don't count me in however, I'm an overly busy and important person. smile.gif

I will let you know if I ever hit 50mil on one board.

I couldn't take it anymore and ordered a Filco TKL brown off Amazon. Time to go GM.

Pull a keycap and post a pic! Then we can tell what kind it is =)

Check out my Steam Profile to see what games I'm playing and what mechanical keyboards I'm using.

I'm thinking of switching from browns to reds. Does anyone have any advice on some mx red boards? I prefer back-lighting if at all possible. I love my U9BL-S back-lighting. I've heard of the upcoming back-lit Ducky boards. The new Corsair is rumored to have some rubber dome switches so it's out of the equation. I also noticed Rosewill is producing a red switch board now. Any other suggestions?

I noticed the mx red section of the keyboard list in this guide was very out of date.
