I bought a Samson C01U USB microphone. I have to say I'm quite disappointed and would not recommend it. Most of the reviews I read were very positive, and in theory you get better quality and save money by buying a USB microphone so you don't have to have a seperate A2D and Mic PreAmp and all that stuff. The problem is it's really really quiet, it's made for you to put your lips almost right on the mic. It works fine when you're that close, but anything further is inaudible, and if you pump up the volume after recording it's just noise. Like even one foot away and the sound goes to shit. God damn it.
