Saved up enough to upgrade to the AT2020, the Unit came clean and tidy and was a really sturdy looking MIC, however I was getting a large amount of feedback from it and it was a lot quieter than the cheap alternative MIC.
After some research found out there was feedback from the 48V phantom power going through to the 3.5mm jack on the PC line in, and that it was washing out the MIC so have replaced it with a Behringer XLR-USB cable and have cleaned up nearly all of the noise on the line.
It works a lot better now and I just need to invest in some better quality equipment to support the MIC to get the best out of it in the future, but it's a lot cleaner than the alternative MIC but needs a bit more gain to get the same level of sound.
If you're using it for Discord voice chats you don't need to do anything, it'll automatically do Mono input for you.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 April 2019
Had to hook it up using an existing phantom power supply and an XLR to USB cable, but when I did this there was a loud, buzzing/hissing on the other end. Couldn't figure out if the issue was the cable, the power supply or the mic and since this mic doesn't come with any other parts, I have no idea what combination of products I need to have the mic work optimally. Also, you can't contact the seller - so I can't ask them.
Really didn't want to have to return this product, but you really can't use it/set it up unless you have an already extensive knowledge of this sort of thing.
You should be going for something more costly if you're a pro - and if you can afford it - but for the rest of us this is a superb choice. Clean sound, great pickup, sturdy and with a nice weight to it, it does what it's meant to do (i.e. record voices and sounds) brilliantly and doesn't feel like it'll break at a moment's notice like some cheaper mics for cool kids do.
Also, while some might find it a bit unflattering to gape at, I like the look of the thing. Functional and unspectacular, like me in many ways.
As someone who has worked in and amongst professional recording environments, I can say that this entry-level mic is very versatile, and the build quality alone is impressive; it feels sturdier than an AKG C414!
Ultimately, microphones that are offered at this price aren't going to be able to compete with the likes of professional studio equipment, but using this in conjunction with an acoustically-treated environment and some good preamps and post-production will certainly give more advanced gear a run for its money.
Oh, and to the reviewer that complained about this microphone not including a power-source or a cable; that gave me a chuckle! This product's intended customer is your typical eager bedroom-producer, not a podcaster looking for a quick solution to vocal overdubs. Always do your research before committing to a purchase :)
