I have a couple of buckling-spring Unicomps as well as IBM model M's,
and while I would agree that the IBM version is more heavily built, I
think the Unicomp is of reasonable quality. At least for people who
don't plan to use it as a deadly weapon.
It would have been nice if they had made the cable detachable though.
Also, I'm not sure it's fair to call Unicomp a "clone", as I understand
it they were either an OEM for IBM, or acquired the production assets
from them, or something along those lines. Pretty close to the real
thing in my view.
