Try the Oppo 980H-
Also, the Phillips 5990 is rumored to be pretty good at handling DivX and or Xvid if you can rip to one of those compressed formats. You won't find anything AFAIK that plays VOBs or MKVs well if that's what you mean by backup.
The 5960 might be had for a bit less though since it has been replaced. Check Amazon.
I'll start with my question. I'm looking to purchace a new DVD player that supports playback from a USB flash drive. I have purchaced HUNDREDS of dvds over the years, and I recently started backing them up onto my computer. My goal is to be able to just go onto my computer, grab the movie I want to watch, and run it on my TV. All the forums on here are VERY outdated, some going back 3 years, and knowing how technology changes, thats ancient stuff. I'm also not looking to break the bank, or buy cutting edge. Does a DVD player exist that will do what I want without forcing me to convert my files to some special format everytime? And please, no next-gen consoles, thanks!
