When you think about tech products, you probably think "refresh cycle" more than "built to last." But as it turns out there are plenty of tech products that put up with hard, daily use year after year.

Thanks to the BuyItForLife (BIFL) subreddit we've got solid recommendations for tech products that are durable, practical, and built to last, if not for life, at least for a suitably long time. Or, as Reddit user elf_dreams put it: '[BIFL] are well made products that are expected to perform their function well after their peers have given up.'
