I bought one of these, and it's AWESOME! For the price, the versatility is unreal. You can burn a CD, DVD or put your files on a flash drive or even an external hard drive, and it plays them all! Not advertised is that it plays .mp4 [iPod / iTunes music]. It does not play m4p songs purchased of of iTunes, but it will if you burn a regular CD, then rip the songs back in.
The delay to play any file is short. It recognizes discs in about 5-8 seconds, and flash drives even less. A video file with a large bitrate does take longer to load, but it's well worth it.

Everything listed here was tested with 2GB and 4GB flash drives...
Will not play a .mov file, but it will play the file if it is renamed with a .avi or a .mp4 extension and both audio and video streams are supported.
Apparently it will not play an AAC audio file or audio stream within a video file if bitrate info is missing, or if it uses an ADTS muxing mode. One or both of these are true, could not isolate which.
Does not play MJPEG video [like from a Kodak digital camera], but it does play the 88.2 Kbps 11.025 KHz LPCM audio stream within a MJPEG .avi file.
Did not play the H.264 stream within an .avi or mp4 container, but it did play the AAC stream.
Played several AAC files created by iTunes, all encoded at various bitrates and sample rates [41 & 48 KHz, 96-192 KHz]
Does play WMV 9 with WMA 9.2 audio
Does play .MPG MPEG 1 video with MPEG audio
Does not play .MKV file with x264 codec
Plays WMA and MP3.

Plays files off an external hard drive as well, but it must be formatted as FAT16 or FAT32.

Philips DVP5990/37 DVD player is good for a mid-range, priced player. Compared to sister company, Magnavox's MDV460/17, the 5990 is far superior and demonstrates why you should spend a little more for quality. The 5990 reads multiple formats including Divx, MP3, and WMA which has become fairly standard for DVD players, but there are two features that set it apart from the competition: flash drive port and online firmware updating. The 460 has none of these features.

Also built into the 5990 is limited memory, so when you turn off the player and go back later to finish your movie, you can start where you left off. The 460 does not. The 5990 is also relatively fast from the time you press the "open disc" button, to the start of the movie (about 15 seconds). The 460 is slower than molasses and doesn't always recognized disc formats (30-40 second start up).

The 460 does a good job of presenting options in the setup menu, offering more optimization than the 5990, but the 5990's simple setup allows you to plug and play, right out of the box, and start enjoying your movie. Both have component video, but only the 5990 has HDMI - the new standard - which offers faster, neater setup.

For those of us that hate having to get up off of the couch to eject the disc, the 5990 offers a handy "lazy person's eject button" on the remote. The 460 makes you work.

The flash drive port options are a little akward on the 5990, but offer a range of options for a variety of multimedia. And the online updating requires you to register, then has trouble finding the unit you are trying to update.

All in all the 5990 is far superior, but you are paying 3 to 4 times the price of the 460. Best Buy and Walmart have recently offered the 5990 for about $60, while other vendors are asking for $80 or more. However, for the price, few offer better than the Philips 5990/37. This is a good buy: the moral being, you get what you pay for. (writen 7/23/08)

I bought this product hoping it would be region free but when I put in a region 2 dvd it didnt work. I was quite upset, looked at the back of the unit, and saw that the player was a region 1 only player. I went onto amazon to put in my warning when I saw another comment from another consumer. I didnt think it would work given my player specifically says its region 1, but if you press setup on the remote, press the right arrow until you get to the "preferences" menu, and press 138931 it will ask you what region you want to set the unit to. Go down to 0 and you are all set. Thanks, whoever it was that put that comment in. I have no idea where you found that out, but a great little secret.

This is a fantastic player which most certainly does play PAL discs without a problem. There is also a superb modified firmware available at videohelp.com which gives longer filenames and some other interface improvements.

The person who claims they had trouble getting discs out of the thin tray and lost discs into the player is...shall we say...less than truthful. It is impossible to push discs into the guts of the player without tripping the door close sensor. Even so, the tray will retract and the disc will fall into the recessed portion of the tray. The cover is held on with screws. How tough would it be to remove the cover if you needed to do so? Not very. I suppose you could turn the unit upside down and shake it to dislodge the disc from the tray. The player is designed for use under regular gravity and in a somewhat stable physical location.

MP3 and WMA support is very good, supporting up to about 650 MP3s per directory. The USB port is in the front which is convenient but somewhat ugly, to be honest. For homemade data discs, I recommend using the freeware program FolderSort (Windows) as the files are sorted by the raw 8.3 format which does not always give the same order as the long filenames.
