Off to the field we went. That is where the love affair ended. I found the digital screen to be unusable. It is a nice idea, but the functionality is poorly executed. There is no on/off button on the transmitter. It remains dark until you activate it by pushing a button. Sometimes it took one push, sometimes two to "turn it on." Which dog? I don't know because the dog number is so small I need my reading glasses to see it. By the time I was confident the unit was on the correct dog and activated to transmit, all opportunity to train had flown away with the birds.
Customer service was courteous, knowledgable and helpful. They discussed my issues with the 1275, provided a return label, and recommended the1825X, which I have since received. It has a toggle switch to change dogs that is visual and tactile. A thumb dial adjusts the intensity. And, it has the same button mode I like to use. I have been out a couple of times now running my veteran and collar conditioning my youngster. So far, so good.

The only improvement I’d like to see is the 4 buttons in the front of the transmitter. The buttons are not very tactile, as I find myself hitting the stimulation increase button multiple times to increase the stimulation by 1 level.
Overall great device, especially with those running multiple dogs.
