It seems a little bit dodgy but all the reviews seem fair so long as you redeem the code immediately after purchase. I'm guessing they are just selling cards that are about to expire?
1 month cards aren't sold stand-alone, they're usually a promotional item. Dunno what the deal is with that.
If you look on XBL, they usually have a 1-month for £2 promotion or something when you're on silver, especially around Christmas. You have to use a credit card for that, but you can actually turn off auto-renewal on Xbox.com now so it's not a big deal. Failing that, the first three accounts connected to XBL on a 360 have a free month of gold with them. So, if you don't give a shit about gamerscore or whatever and you haven't used them, you could just make a new account.
