1st Home Recording Mic (Budget, USB)

I've only recently started redeveloping my voice (which used to be in good shape, about 12 years ago) and I want something better than my laptop's built-in mic to be able to record and listen to myself and eventually upload some youtube content. What I'm looking for is a really affordable (<$60) plug'n'play mic that won't require additional hardware support (i.e. preamp, etc.). I've been reading the forum and devouring reviews and scanning deals and here's what I've narrowed the field down to. All are USB interface condensers. Sale prices from Ama2on are listed first, including shipping, with list prices in parentheses.

CAD u37 - $43.74 ($79.00)
Blue Snowball - $43.69 ($99.00)
Samson Meteor - $45.95 ($149.99)
AudioTechnica ATR 2500-USB - $35.24 ($100.00)

and, if I can snag 'em from e-Bay without the bids surpassing my self-imposed cutoff of $60 (including shipping):

AudioTechnica AT 2020 ($149.00)
Samson C 01 ($119.99)
MXL USB.006 ($189.95)

Has anyone had experience with any of these models? I'm currently leaning toward the Meteor as all-around value pick, unless I can pick up an AT 2020 on the cheap.

a Shure SM48 would do you proud as well. I have one in addition to my Shure SM57.

I got my Sennheiser E 835 on ebay for $74.99, free shipping. I was the only one to put a bid on it of $75 dollars and no one else bid.
