Cheap tyres for bike commuting

Michelin Dynamite cycle tyre
I am a bike commuter and go through a fair amount of tyres. I will keep a list here of tyres I have bought and my 'novice' opinions on them. I would say with cycle commuting that puncture resistance is a priority. I go for 700 x 23c size tyres (speed over comfort).

Tyre (table forthcoming)

Michelin dynamic, 700 x 23c, ok but prone to puncture (?), 6/10 (not recommended)
Schwalbe Lugano 700 x 23c, about to buy, , £10.50 inc p&p, Parker
