Topic (yes depends on usage) I use mine every day and generally for browsing, office docs and some gaming. Just got my mouse and keyboard combo about 2 weeks ago.

Mine have always lasted a few years each with everyday and heavy gaming use. No abuse though.

This generic keyboard has been in full time use since March 2003.

Varies greatly by the hardware. I've got an IBM model M in the closet that may well outlive me and I've seen generic keyboards that barely lasted a year in offices.
More and more, it feels like I'm doing a really bad impersonation of myself.

I usually find myself changing that stuff out every 3-5 years.

Until they break which can take years to do. I've had membrane keyboards last me 15 years and up before. People treat things as expendable these days because our modern society are wasteful and impatient.

I've never had a keyboard break aside from when I spilled pop on one and my cat ate the wire on the other.

mice... after a few years for me they always develop some sort of click error, like double clicking instead of single clicking or unable to hold and drag.

usually open them up and fix them but it always comes back.

It depends how soon you dump booze on them.

If it's a good keyboard it'll last you up to ten years, maybe even more.

Mice generally last two to five years.
