What can you expect?

Of course you have to be aware that quality has its price.
And so you should be clear about the demands you place on the sound of your microphone before buying. For Podcasts, Let's play or the like, you will probably get satisfactory results even with a cheap microphone. Because this is where most of them are in the first place interference-free recording and good Speech intelligibility.

But also the first Demo recordings of music want to do, will achieve absolutely audible results with some post-processing.
However, if the recordings are to be made available to a wider public, one should definitely think about investing a little more (e.g. in the Rode NT1-A ›).

What should you watch out for?

Especially the high one Noise floor cheaper (USB) microphones is a negative factor. And of course, depending on the design, a microphone “flatters” the voice more or less. When it comes to cheap microphones for € 30 and less, you should stay away from it all!
