Hi! I want to buy a blu-ray drive that doesn't cost much and i've found a very cheap blu-ray reader USB 2.0 that works also as a burner. I don't need to burn Blu-rays, i need it only to watch movies. So my question is: can it playback a Blu-ray at 1080p with no problem like maybe lagging or having other issues due to the speed of USB 2.0 or to other problems?

Short answer: yes, it can play.
Long answer: blu-ray needs 50Mbps data throughput at best, while USB 2.0 is capable of transporting 480Mbps. _________________ projectors in the past : NEC 6-9PG xtra, Electrohome Marquee 6-7500, NEC XG 1351 LC ( with super modified Electrohome VNB neckboard !!!)
