Pros: Clarity, Quality, USB (for noobs)

Cons: Not high end? USB (for pros)

This is an awesome condenser mic for the first time Podcaster or VO artist. Most pros will steer you away from a USB mic, but unless you want to drop a lot of money on other equipment, USB is the way to go for a beginner.

Even if you are just using this mic to Skype or play video games with your friends, it's a huge leap over any attached mic on a headset or standard desktop mic. The clarity of this mic is incredible. The amount of volume this mic can take without distortion is something incredible.

My review is solely on my perceptioon of the product. Others might tell you to spend $300-400 on a different one, but for $70 on Amazon right now you really can't go wrong.
Audio-Technica AT2020 Side Address Cardiod Condensor Studio Mic
Description:

The price/performance standard in side-address studio condenser microphone technology, Audio Technica's AT2020 studio mic has a low-mass diaphragm that is custom-engineered for extended frequency response and superior transient response. With rugged construction for durable performance, the microphone offers a wide dynamic range and handles high sound pressure levels (SPLs) with ease. Ideal for project/home-studio applications, the cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source. The pivoting, threaded stand mount attaches securely for easy and precise placement of the microphone The AT2020 is intended for use in applications where remote power is available. It requires 48V DC phantom power, which may be provided by a mixer or console, or by a separate, in-line source such as the Audio-Technica AT8801 single-channel and CP8506 four-channel phantom power supplies.
