You're asking a lot of vague questions. Is switch on pcb good? How do you define "good"? Switches are mounted on PCBs all the time.

Is there possibility of pins becoming disconnected? How are you actuating it? How often?

Advise on slide or push? Which would you like?

Basically, better switches perform better.

Think about what you really want, what your environment is, etc. There's no way anybody can answer your questions.

Vague questions can get only vague answers. Today there are many different kinds of switches in the market and you can certainly choose a good design.

...like my dad's car music player, my friend's home theater, and many more are having not working switch...

Are you sure that the mechanical part of the switch has actually failed? Most of these switches are just some signal to some microprocessor- the switch actually handles very little power (voltage or current)

Many of the consumer electronics are designed with a finite short life: often called planned obsolescence.

The switch used in common computer mouse is one of the cheapest and most widely used; if installed carefully (and this important; you should not be able to press it more than needed to turn it on) it will give you a good service.
