[quote=Plexed;2172816]Not really a bargain. The only DVD player I’d consider buying is the Phillips 5990 or 5992 which is also around $50. It has a USB 2.0 port for flash drives or a hard drive so you can watch mpeg, Divx and avi movies. The 5990 even plays Windows media (wmv) files. Also, the 5990 is a 1080p upscaling player. You need a hack (just press a few button combinations on the remote) to make it region-free, but it plays PAL and NTSC.
I just noticed that this unit is $26 if you apply for the Amazon.com Rewards VisaÂ® Card (not that I have one or plan to apply).
How is Philips these days with firmware upgrades for these units?
Does it play all versions of wmv? I think I was reading about a Toshiba that played flv files, too. I haven’t seen one that plays mp4’s, though.
