Great quality and well-made
This review is from: MXL MXLUSB008 Black USB Connector USB Condenser Microphone
Pros: USB interface, works out of the box with Linux (Debian Squeeze with JACK), the audio quality is amazing. It has this solid feel and I know this thing is gonna last awhile. The free loot that comes with it is pretty swell too; the desktop stand is solid and the included USB cable is plenty long and not-cheap feeling.
Cons: When I first plugged it in to my Win7 box, the OS changed my default speakers device to the microphone. I suspect this is Microsoft's problem, not MXL's, but in any case it took a whole ten seconds to switch back and it hasn't been a problem since.
Other Thoughts: You will need to purchase your own pop filter. Also, it's a condenser mic so care is advised. But you're here looking at a high-dollar mic rather than the cheap plastic ten dollar junk, so you know that already.
