Introduction

BodhiBoxes is probably a name that most aren't familiar with. Run by Pyrodius Inc. which was founded in 2003, BodhiBox is a Home Theater Personal Computer (HTPC) provider based in Orlando, Florida. According to their official blog, the first BodhiBox, dubbed BodhiBox HD, was introduced on June 5, 2009. Less than a year later the company introduced the follow-up version to the original, the BodhiBox HD2 which we have for review today. Like the original BodhiBox, the HD2 is a tiny HTPC that is designed to fit seamlessly into your entertainment system and provide you with everything a traditional HTPC would do at a fraction of the size.


Included with the BodhiBox HD2 is the system itself, a power cable, Logitech Cordless Desktop EX 100 that includes a wireless mouse, keyboard and receiver, a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium, a DVI to VGA adapter, two small antennas for the WiFi card and a Mediagate MCE Remote Control.

Hardware specifications on the BodhiBox HD2 include an Intel Core i3-530 operating at 2.93 GHz, a ZOTAC H55ITX-A-E Mini ITX motherboard, 2GB of DDR3-1333, 500 GB Western Digital Caviar Green hard drive, 10x LG Blu-ray drive, integrated Intel HD Graphics and Wireless B/G/N. BodhiBox went with the IN WIN BM639.AD160TBL Mini-ITX chassis for this system that features an integrated 160W power supply.

Let's continue ahead and take a closer look at the BodhiBox HD2 and everything included with it.
