Audio Technica ATR 2100 USB/XLR Hybrid Microphone

A few weeks ago on the Podcasters Community, I was hearing about this microphone for podcasting. At first glance I blew it off, but with more podcasters talking about it, I thought I would get the microphone and check it out. I am talking about the Audio Technica ATR2100 microphone.
