USB mics can be awesome.... I have them, use them, and love them. 

But it can be important to remind folks starting out that USB mic set ups are limited to single mic situations.  Not a worry if you only do single narrator VO. But if you need to record a "conversation" between to voice actors say for a sales, coaching, or customer service scenario for example, that is a particular problem for USB mics. This is where a preamp - D/A covertor with two or more condenser mics really shines.

Back to the recommendations at hand.... Blue Yeti and Samsung C01U are great USB mics. You should love either.
