Since I got it on clearance, you really can't beat the price. Mic is clear, and when paired with Audacity, really an amazing deal. The only negative thing I can say about this mic is you have to be right on it to be crisp and clear. But it IS clear. Very little back ground noise. And, like I said, you get Audacity and you can amplify the audio and remove what little back ground noise there is and you are golden. I do not regret buying this mic. It will likely do me for quite some time.
