My cheap Joe Blow floor pump has been working for the past 10 years.
A lot of the issues with pumps that are constructed well and have a decent design comes down to customer usage.
Some users simply do not know how to use a pump.

@Wingnut agree, my Silca is one of the newer models without the wooden handle but is excellent

I have a 10 year old silca superpista that needed a replacement gasket after 7 years of daily use (4.95). At some point about 4 years ago I picked up a serfas floor pump, the 606 model or something like that for about 5 dollars w/ a gift card and while cheap, it's actually works really well. Never had an issue with it.

I use a Silca floor pump I purchased in 1982. No problems...ever. Easily replaced parts, but they rarely need replacement. It works...period.

I've had the same random Bontrager pump for the better part of 8-9 years and its worked like a charm. I don't get how some people break pumps, but I have noticed that several brands have terrible base joints. Specialized in particular has a pump body that screws onto the base, which loses its seal as the threads back out a bit.

I got a floor pump from Tesco's ,it cost £10 about 4 years ago and still works great. On rides I carry a tiny little pump it must be about 15cm or so and it works fine as well and gets my tyres up pretty hard about 100psi .

Everyone loves Silca. I bought one last year. It had a brass and plastic head. Broke in 1.5 tires. Thought, ok, maybe a fluke. Bough a new head, all medal, from QBP (but Silca branded). Broke after the second tire. Now the pump sits in the corner collecting dust. POS

Everyone loves the old Silcas. I'm not quite sure how old is old enough.

Had a late 80's orange Silca, Columbus tubing etc. It worked, it got old. Got a Spec Air Tool Pro. It worked, Silca got thrown out. Got over it.
