    A nice switch feel won’t matter much if the switch doesn’t work reliably for the life of the device. The best tactile switches will typically offer a life expectancy measured from 100,000 to more than a million press-and-release cycles. Like force and travel specifications, the predicted lifecycle for every electronic switch is readily available on its datasheet.
