Anyone have any suggestions for a Tablet that has HDMI, USB ports. Can connect a Blu-Ray Disc Writer/Player (prefferably 3D) I found a lot of 3D Tablets at Amazon that can handle 3D games and 3D content on internal and external storage devices but nothing about connecting a Blu-Ray Disc Writer/Player to view Blu-Ray movies. A Tablet that can be connected to a 3D Projector and can access the web, Hulu and Netflix.

Bluray discs have several different layers of DRM. As such you would need software on your tablet that can decrypt the disc and then play the file. Im not aware of any such software.

The Microsoft Surface Pro (v1 or v2) can handle that. I loaded TMT5 on it, and was able to play BR ISOs without any issue. I don't have access to a 3D tv, so couldn't test that portion, but don't envision any issues with it.

Is Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet the only Tablet that can handle 3D Blu-Rays? I'm considering them but the Surface Pro Tablets are out of my budget for a Tablet.
