Check out the Nashbar NA-PDL, a SPD compatable Wellgo clone of Shimano. I've used these pedals extensively for 2 years with nothing but good things to say about them. $32.95

The Performance Classic Road pedal is on sale online. It's also a "Wellgo", though Look-Style pedal. I had no problem with them. They worked well for me.

Good luck.

If you're looking for light, cheap, and SPD style clipless, I recommend the Ritchey Design Logic Pro. Only 238g and you typically can find them for $50-60. I bought them for the weight and SPD (so I can use the same shoes for both Road and MTB- purists be damned) at a great price. The downside of these pedals? The look like crap (from scratches) after a few rides because of the material they're made of but nobody really sees them when your clipped in anyway. They're on the small side (i.e. the platform) and single sided so getting in takes some getting used to. Not recommended for stop and go commutes where you clip/unclip frequently. Also it helps to have a stiff soled shoe so that that the pressure is distributed better. If you're new to clipless, go doublesided so it's one less thing to worry about.

Supergo, Nashbar, Performance, and the LBS seem to always have good sale prices on pedals, don't pay full price because you don't have to. Nashbar has lot of pedals with their name on them (but made by often the big name companies) at much lower prices if you're more into value than a fancy expensive label. Happy shopping!
