    Are there specific Blu-ray players that you need to get or is it just fine to buy a cheap Blu-ray player and hook it up to the iMac using bootcamp to watch Blu-ray movies? (Sorta run-on sentence there.lol)

    You certainly don't wanna miss not watching Blu-ray movies on a 27" iMac!

    Thanks!

    Blu-ray is blu-ray. If it has a SATA connection it will work.

    osx does not support blu-ray viewing

    however, i believe the 27 also allow inputs so if you get a blue ray player not a blu-ray drive it should work i would think

    in bootcamp, any will work to my understanding

    So basically all I gotta do is install Windows, and plug in a blu-ray player and can start watching?

    Or you could just rip the Blu-ray disc to your hard drive using Make MKV then play it back with Plex.
