Nice at the price, not for coders or fast typists. – USB/PS2 Black Ultraslim Flexible Washable Dustproof Keyboard (Indestructible) Reviews

Pros:
Very handy to have around as a spare keyboard and also is ideal for situations where dust and dampness is an issue. This works fine despite getting wet, and even if it does get damaged, it's not a big issue replacing it given the price is so low.
Cons:
The keyboard has a really weird texture to it, especially when you pick it up. The back of it just feels odd in the hand. A bit flimsy perhaps. Also, in the area where the electronic components are enclosed, it feels a bit vulnerable. I am cautious holding it as it feels like I could be squishing something.
Also there is no SysRq which is a bit inconvenient for a linux user like myself.
Also as mentioned before, the buttons can be a bit unresponsive. You can't type quickly on it.
Other:
There are 4 shift buttons and 2 space bars. It's a bit excessive!
Bottomline:
Good keyboard at a grand price.
