Wasn't sure about the HD8000 after reading a few bad reviews but for the price I figured I would give it a try. First, my situation. I am in a major city with 40 or so OTA stations and with rabbit ears, indoor flat mat or similar antennas I can get about 8-10 stations with various degrees of reliability (changing signal strength, pixelation etc). I have CBS due south and all others North to NorthWest. I watch CBS the most but I always have to re-orient my antenna's when switching channels or pixel chop. Blah! I also have an outdoor directional VHF/UHF from days gone bye on a 25ft mast w/o a rotator so pretty useless in my case. So that is where I mounted the HD8000. Here are the results:
Total channels 32 (30 are clear and reliable)
No orientation can bring in CBS (due south) and the north-west stations reliably BUT all is not lost. CBS is also broadcast on a Due north tower that I can now reliably receive with this antenna along with the other north-west tower located stations.

i am using this antenna indoors less than 5 miles from major broadcast towers -- still directional -- found that it gets better reception without the amplifier

I live in a poor signal reception area, with two transmitters in the area situated in nearly opposite directions from my house splitting the local channel coverage. This antenna solves that problem. I get all local stations even when the antenna is indoors; it will be roof-mounted when the winter ice finally melts. I've tried using multiple antennas both on the roof and inside, and until this one, I wasn't able to get half the channels without rigging up two antennas and a coupler. My only gripe is the plastic construction of the mounting arm. I wish it had metal components. I just know this antenna mounting arm will break one day, and it will break my heart. Until then, at least I got to watch the Super Bowl.

Works no better than inexpensive rabbit ears for me. The construction quality seems poor and ML does not accept returns on this product.
I live within 15 miles of local broadcast antennas and should have no problem with reception if the published gain specs are accurate, but get only intermittent reception for half of the local stations available to me.
Not happy that I bought this.

Works great and very easy to install. I was using the Lava HD before purchasing the omni pro. I found that the Omni pro needs less adjustment and brings in all channels clearly without pixelation.
I'll buy another and retire this other one.

I highly recommend this antenna. After spending 15 minutes adjusting rabbit ears when choosing which set of channels I wanted to try to access, I had just about given up on the whole indoor antenna idea - so much so that I ordered an outdoor antenna. When I saw how big it was and how scary the installation directions were, I was debating whether it was worth working a second job to pay a cable bill when I saw this sweet antenna. Now I get all of the available channels at the same time and I rarely have to slightly shift the dome should the image start to pixelate. A few seconds vs. 15 minutes? I can handle that!

I live in San Diego and I was hoping to use this antenna to eliminate high cable fees ($20 for basic cable...what a rip-off). If this antenna could pick up the standard three channels (CBS, NBC, ABC) and PBS I'd be happy. I was able to get 3 out of the 4 channels but the last channel is the one that I watch the most. I cannot live without my shows on CBS so I'm forced to keep my Time Warner Cable account. Rats! Buying an HD antenna is a crap shoot...it may work for your needs or it may not. If not, you are stuck with a useless antenna. If you do purchase this or any antenna, keep in mind that the higher you place the antenna, the better the reception. I'm giving this product 3 stars because it is not omni-directional. To get a clear reception, I had to rotate this antenna manually until I could capture a signal. Good luck.

This antenna worked well for me. I live in a suburban area and there are many trees in line of sight to the transmission towers, but this pulls in stations.
Easy to install, plus an inline amp.
