Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by joelav22 The absolute best blade in this price range.
I am not a professional, but woodworking is my passion. I spend easily 20 to 30 hours a week in my garage shop. I have a fairly extensive collection of tools for a homeowner/non-professional. In that collection I have a large amount of saw blades. Some far more expensive than others. I have some blades that cost over twice what this one does. The reason I bought this was I had to cut A LOT of sappy wood and did not want to gum up my good blades.
I am happy to say this is probably my most used blade. Unless I am ripping very long lumber or making a lot of cross cuts (especially mitered cross cuts) at once, I use this blade. It is excellent in both hardwood and soft wood. If you have a zero clearance insert for your table saw, it also cuts veneered plywood with very little to no tear out. Given I have an underpowered saw (1.75hp), the thin kerf is easier for the saw to swing. In addition the kerf isn't so thin that it is below the capacity of my riving knife. You can't rip as fast as you could with a 24 or 30 tooth ripping blade, however it is still up to the task and cuts cleanly. Cross cutting is also more than acceptable with a tiny bit of tear out at the trailing edge of the work piece. That is to be expected with a combo blade. If you want perfection, get an 80 tooth cross cut blade
Alas, this is a low end blade. I have been using this for about 8 months and it is beginning to show a need for a sharpening, This is not unexpected as I am putting a low end consumer level blade through some pretty demanding duty cycles. I do not know if there is enough carbide on here to make me feel comfortable using it after a sharpening, however at under 40$, I will have no trouble simply replacing it

Cuts all types of wood in my table saw smoothly. I don't like changing blades frequently. I find I can just leave this one in and it holds up well. Does rips and crosscuts well.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TamU Not worth the extra money.
Had read and heard from others that the Diablo was among the best. I chose the blade according to the primary work I was going to do; cut picture-frame moulding. Many of the cuts were not clean on the backend of small moulding, leaving splinters. (That may be a problem with the moulding, but i bought that from Home Depot also). I am disappointed in the product because of the build-up from others. If these blades are the best, then the others must really be bad. I guess I just expected more.

First time using a Diablo Blade. Bought a new 10" 50 tooth combo to replace a 24 tooth on a new Dewalt Table saw. This blade DOES cut as advertised. Very smooth cut, quick, quiet with no wobble as some blades do. Had to adjust the fence for the thin kerf ( a whole 30 seconds ). Has been used to both rip and crosscut with both being smooth with no teeth marks or splitting. I won't be buying any other kind of blade from now on.

Cut through a stack of cherry

This blade cuts smoothly and effortlessly - like the proverbial hot knife through butter - really. And it leaves behind very smooth edges/cuts.
However, it does wear out. I bought a new one on a friend's recommendation when starting a large laminate floor project, and used it up in the process, so I know roughly how much cutting I actually did before it wore out. The surface of the laminate flooring is really tough stuff, so I expected the blade to take a lot of abuse. By the end of the project, I had cut about a thousand linear feet (+/- 100) - about 1/3 ripping the through the laminate, about a third doing cross cuts, and the rest an equal combination of rips and crosscuts through mostly 1x4 pine. In the end, the blade still left smooth cuts, but was hard to pull through a 2x4 cross cut and smoked a bit when ripping through pine. I expect the blade will last a LOT longer if just cutting kiln dried lumber.
Overall, I was happy enough to throw it away at the end of the project and buy a new one.
