I do not know how many I have owned. It must have been more than 20
years ago when I bought my first one.

I also owned several mice. The first one was their first mouse with
three buttons. I stopped using it after computers did not have serial
ports anymore. So, it simply worked and worked and worked.

None failed for me while being on service. One was eaten alive by
termites, some got thrown away by an ex. Some gone missing in action.
Two are doing currently active service. One with cable, one without.

I am not able to tell how these things are handled on the other side of
the globe.
