First National Bank. I also have both business and personal checking accounts. The only problem I ever had was when I lived in south central PA for 4 years, I had to switch banks because they weren't in that area. When I moved back to Pittsburgh, I went back to them.

The only bank I truly recommend you avoid is F.N.B. They had a security breach in October that caused an error where even though we had a positive balance we kept getting overdraft fees and bounced checks. No amount of calling customer service or talking to branch managers fixed it. And then they closed our other account because they first was reading overdrawn and tried to send us to collections. We had to involve the Banking department and are currently in a legal battle to get our money back. We actually won the first hearing but the bastards filed an appeal. DO NOT BANK WITH F.N.B.

I've banked with First National (FNB) since i moved here. they have free checking and savings. I've never had an issue with them.

I have a FNB account and they are actually beginning to catch up with PNC tech-wise. They're also integrating with Zelle next year for instant Venmo-like payments that I'd imagine will be free of charge, which is enticing if you pay friends for stuff often.

I haven't been with anyone other than FNB for a very long time. But in that time I have changed cellphone service providers, internet service providers, and pretty much everything else multiple times because service levels pissed me off. That should give you an indication.
