Vestel T7300 Freeview+ HD (Project Breathe)
Freeview+ The T7300 model became available in January 2012 after several months of extensive testing and development. It marks Vestel foray into DVB-T2 equipped Freeview+ HD recorders, using the Broadcom chipset and Sony CXD2820R DVB-T2 demodulators. Cosmetically, the unit is very similar to the T825 models, although the remote control is of a different design.

From a usability point-of-view, again the brand new Project Breathe software is very similar to previous models and therefore if you upgrade to this new HD model, you'll instantly be able to pick things up even if the user interface is a little different (mainly the colour scheme). The good news is that many of the issues that were present on earlier models are fixed, in particular stuttering/jumping - recordings in my experience are problem-free for SD and HD. Output is 576p, 720p, 1080i or 1080p via HDMI, or 576i via SCART. These units also have working iPlayer support on launch, when connect via ethernet, via the web-based interface which offers the high quality replays from HD channels.
