I definitely recommend this system. I use it with my Chocolate Lab that is about 6 months old and he is doing great. After the initial period where he was confused by this thing vibrating on his neck, he put two and two together and now works great off leash. I love that I can vibrate, tone and shock with one collar.
In my two months of testing with my pup, I only found one flaw with the system. The electrical stimulation is very harsh! I can't use any level besides 1 on the momentary setting. If I use anything else he will yelp. The continuous setting hits a lot harder than the momentary so I basically can't use that at all. I can't see any situation that I would ever need to use level 3 let a lone level 7!
*Update 8/21/13 - I emailed SportDog and asked about the intensity levels. They directed me to the exact spot in the manual with instructions on how to lower the intensity. I guess I just never saw that part when reading through the manual.
All in all, still great! Just train your dog to respond to the vibrate or tone and use the electrical as a last resort.

I love this collar system. I only received it this morning but I love it so much I thought I needed to review it based on my initial impressions. Also, seeing as there are only 2 other reviews (as of 4/3/13) I thought another review would be helpful for prospective buyers.
I have owned an SD-400 for about 2 years. It is a great product and I loved it, but always wished it would vibrate instead of beep. When I got a new puppy I wanted to add a collar, however, if I did so I would lose the ability to use the tone feature. I saw this SD-425 Camo and was sold! This is basically just an updated version of the SD-400.
Vibrate feature as well as tone. With only one dog you essentially have 4 features you can do. Tone, continuous, momentary AND vibrate.
Small compact receiver
Light weight transmitter. Only 2.2 oz. I thought it was defective at first because it was so light. I thought they forgot to put my battery inside!
Li Ion batteries!!! Used to take 24 hours to charge the SD-400. Now, only 2!!!
50-70 Hours of use on single charge according to my manual
Outside of transmitter is very slick. My SD-400 has a rubbery feeling to it which I think is better than the SD-425 Camo
Ability to add-a-dog but the additional collars are almost as expensive as an entire system
Not pros or cons:
The lanyard is redesigned. I like how it has a quick detach buckle, however, I liked the old ring and metal clasp. Combine the old lanyard with the new and they will have a winner.
All in all, I love this and am excited to start training my new pup. Based on my experience with the older SD-400 I would recommend this to a friend. If anything changes I will update my review.
When I put the collar on her and she cowered, I realized she had been badly shock collar trained while in the first breeder's care, who also had land. She IMMEDIATELY began doing a weird heel on my left side where she was leaning into me hard and tripping me up badly. I suspected the first breeder had too many dogs to work with her high energy and misunderstanding of the heel command. I spent the next couple of days un-training the slam-into-my-left-knee heel that she was attempting to do. Then I used the training collar kind of like a digital leash, teaching her one beep meant to stop what she was doing and come to me. (The correction of just the beep sent her into a panic but she appreciated me happily petting her when she came to me and was calm enough then to receive the next command.)
I was doing off-leash training in our front yard when a friend pulled up with the window down and she went for the car, most likely to see if the friend had food. She ignored the beep and my off-leash Doberman was now in the middle of the street so I hit the button, which was on level 2. (I had selected this level guessing that if I had an emergency, she might be able to feel it and hopefully respond.) She yelped and immediately turned around to obey the command to come. I was surprised that the stubborn-level collar was that powerful. I have never tried level 7. She responds flawlessly to the beeps and vibration now, only having been corrected another time on level 1, which did not cause a yelp.
She is a whole new dog. She listens, she obeys and she has SO MUCH MORE FREEDOM NOW! Every day we do an off-leash walk where I let her sniff, relax and unwind as we walk without the stress of leash corrections all the time. Before, she was so terrible on a leash. She would pull, I would correct her and she would "heel" by pushing into my leg and kind of cutting me off or bumping into me and making me trip up, only to pull on the leash again. Walking her was an exercise in patience and we had been doing this for the entire 4 years I have owned her without her understanding that I wanted her to walk relaxed on a loose leash. She was either ears-up and incredibly intense, looking for squirrels to chase or she was pushing me off the sidewalk, trying to heel. There was no in-between for her and I'm not an inexperienced owner or trainer. The collar is giving her the freedom to be off-leash and learn how to walk near me in a normal way, which will translate to much better on-leash walking. She is also learning that two rapid beeps are an invitation for her to push into me in her "heel" - which actually looks as if she is being very protective, trying stop me to stand between me and someone approaching me - and when she understands this behavior by command, she will understand when I am NOT commanding that behavior.
In short, the collar is helping to free my Dobe from a cycle of confusion and now she's enjoying more frequent walks, less stressful training time and a better quality of life overall. She's going to love being a country girl and I know our family will enjoy her company for her entire beautiful life.
To say that I am pleased with the collar is an understatement. It was well worth the investment to give my gorgeous girl so much freedom.
