Default Need advise: budget player with good file support

Hi all,
I'm looking for a budget player(110-140$ max) with good file support(it has to play most video files, including .WMV, if possible .flv aswell), good picture and DVD upscale. Since I live in Europe I don't care about the apps and the streaming it has(I wont be using them), I'll mainly be using it for BDs, DVDs and USB.
I have the sony BDP-s390 in mind, but I'm looking for other(better) options.

I've just bought a Pioneer BDP-150. It's cheap, fast, looks good and plays loads of video formats.

I just checked the specs and it doesn't seem to play .mkv files.
Also I've changed my mind about the bdp-s390(i dont want DRM in my movies) so I'm going to get an LG bd660(plays any file type I can think of, its cheap and also plays 3d blu-rays).
Still open to suggestions however.

Forgot to mention that I'm from Europe and that Samsung isn't available here.
Also checked that Pioneer BDP-150 again and it seems like a great player, however it has cinavia so no buy.

Yes it does. mkv is a container and not a codec, hence they haven't listed it as such.

The BDP-150 is capable of playing back Blu-ray Discs, DVDs, CDs and SACDs and offers compatibility with the most widespread video formats, including the smartphone specific 3gp file format, Flash video, DivX, DivX Plus HD and MKV from disc, USB and via a compatible network Mac, PC or media server. With audio, all key files are supported, from WMA to MP3 AAC and the lossless audio codec FLAC 4. Through the familiar user interface of the player, users will also be able to enjoy YouTube videos and watch Picasa photo albums.
