:My personal favorite(though I have yet to actually own one at home) is the Shure SM57. It's a great little dynamic mic that you can pretty much drop all over the place, and it will still work. SM57's are also used alot in live recordings and performances, and are largely considered one of the most versatile mics on the market. It's the mic I have the lead singers at my church use when I'm running sound. They only cost around 100 bucks too, so you get great quality for a great price.
Gotta say, I'm thrilled to hear this. I have an SM57 that I bought for putting in front of my guitar amp (and I've had studio techies do the same thing, so i knew I'd made the right choice for that), but I wasn't sure if it was gonna be good for voiceovers. It's great to hear someone talking it up for voiceovers, 'cause it means I don't have to worry about getting another mic :D
