  • MKV (Matroska (.mkv) playback)

    Matorska support means that the player is capable of playing .mkv video files directly from a disc or a memory card, without converting them first to another format.

  Rating: 5 / 5 Value for money: 4 / 5

Got mine almost a year ago in gorgeous black; very nice looker.
Plays everything I throw at it and doesn't seem to care about media either (which makes a very welcome change).
Doesn't have a problem with packed or unpacked bitstreams and homebrew firmwares are available to give you a region-free hack.
IMO a brilliant SD DVD player.
