If it says you can upgrade to the eclipse commander, than the unit will not play MP3's with out it. My deck won't play them without that unit eiter.

That deck plays not mp3s unless you have the eclipse commander advance unit. Eclipse had a couple of mp3 decks for 03, nearly all of the 04 decks played mp3s(I think all but their very bottom deck) and the same holds true for '05.

Here is a review on that deck though. Eclipse makes great decks.

I hope you haven't been searching too long. Google "Eclipse CD5423" and it gives the link to the info on that deck on eclipse's site.

You should be able to get a 55040 way cheaper. A 55040 is atleast 5 years old.

How much are you paying for the 55040? Also, is it on ebay or is it from a local seller?

Buy the CD5423 over the 55040 dude, best extra $$ you could ever spend.
