So Far... So Good!..., 4/12/14
This is my third invisible fence. The first two were Innotek with rechargeable collars. The systems worked fine but the collars were short lived and expensive. I decided to try this PetSafe unit with the rechargeable collar. So far so good.
This system worked just like my previous systems and the collar is holding a charge above my expectations. The Innotek collars were easier to recharge by leaving them on the transmitter box or with the wall plug hanger. The PetSafe collar requires you to manually plug them in with the supplied charger and cable. Not a big deal really.
The controls are easy to use on the transmitter but setting the stimulation level on the collar is a pain. You need to wait for the flashing lights on the collar and then press the button on the collar to set the level. I am sure my timing is off but it takes me several tries to change the stim level. A nice feature is the contact tone that lets you know if the collar is making contact with your dog when you turn the collar on and put it on within 30 seconds. The higher end Innotek collar did the same thing but only after you took the collar off of the charger and immediately put it on the dog. The PetSafe system allows you to turn the collar off and back on to use this feature. We'll see how long the collar lasts. I love the quick release on the collar. My first Innotek collar had this and it is great for taking the it off as soon as your dog enters the house or car.

I am pleased with this system so far.

2 months in, working great, 4/7/14
We have 3 dogs: pug + boston terrier + husky. The boston enjoyed running down our quite street when a vehicle passed by... He is exceptionally fast. Within the first week they all learned the yard limits and have not attempted to leave our 1.7 acres. I have removed their collars a few times, and still not have had any issues. Our neighbor installed the same system for their 2 labradoodles. They also are very satisfied with their YardMax.
I would suggest this system to anyone who wants to keep their pups in their yards, and also keep the yard open. Buying this saved me a lot of time , work and money! (A BIG Thanks to my brother who spent Saturday installing it while I was at the office! )

Didn't work at all - solo frustrated (as well as my dogs!), 3/31/14
Collar was activating all over my yard - wouldn't shut off. Scared the heck out of all of us! Can't keep this. . . Will have to look to a pro.

Same guy as before.....make sure to RAM CHARGER IN, 12/15/13
So maybe my unit is not the charge light to come on after ramming it into the collar to charge (curved receiver and square charger surfaces).

It works, but its some work (VERY energetic black lab), 12/15/13
Ok, so the install is a bit of a challenge (you're gonna bury hundreds and hundreds of wire underground, across drive-ways, etc). I am very hands on, lets call me a 9 out of 10, and have a section of bermuda lawn and un-groomed property - so she can run the whole place instead of eating my house.

So my Zoey is a year old, 70 pounds, field bred, and can jump a 5 foot fence from a standing position (olympic class jumper) and has, through her antics, helped to introduce me to every neighbor within a 1/2 mile. There's a road close so time for and underground fence. Kit is simple, buy more wire than you walk off as your requirement, and be cognizant of sprinkler lines, cable lines, and other shallow utilities, and you play an interesting game because you have to get deeper than an aerator for your yard goes, and shallow enough not to run into other lines. I did my whole yard in two sessions with a hand edger blade - not fun, and ran across driveway in the expansion joint and caulked it down (works ok).

Zoey learned very quickly by getting shocked, laid down and eyes twitching (dont let your wife see this - but she did learn not to challenge the beeping collar). So the answer to the question "WIll by dog get enough correction (shock) to stop....uh YEAH!!

The collar charging is a bear, and the unit has only one red/green LED and it's about impossible to figure out what the heck it means - even with the manual.

Mine has been in a week, and my charger is apparently shot, or the battery, or something. I assume Petsafe will stand by it though, because in truth Zoey is more cautious than challenging to the system and is learning slowly where she can and cannot go.

I could have gone with the wireless system, but the boundaries are somewhat undefined (driven by wireless signal reaching her collar), so I went with the more difficult in ground wire party.

Good luck....
