Answer: 
This bit does OK on controlled plunge cuts in cement board. For what you want, you should really look at the 1/4 in. Floor Tile and Countertop X-Bit, XB-FTC1. You can get it on homedepot.com and have it shipped.
But no matter what you do, a RotoZip will never do as good a job cutting ceramic floor tile as a wet saw. For small cuts, most guys use an angle grinder with a diamond continuous rim or a Read More

But no matter what you do, a RotoZip will never do as good a job cutting ceramic floor tile as a wet saw. For small cuts, most guys use an angle grinder with a diamond continuous rim or a diamond turbo blade. For really small cuts, a little diamond wheel on a rotary tool does the trick. Bosch makes diamond jigsaw blades that do OK. There are diamond drill bits that work fine if you use them correctly. A RotoZip just isn't a good tool for this job. Read Less

Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Packaging deceptive I purchased in store and the packaging is genius. Well done marketing. The package is a plastic container suitable for three bits. There are three nice slots the bits can be held in. The label is placed over two of the slots leaving one slot viewable. In this slot is a bit, the other slots no bit. Tricky part is they advertised 3x longer life, but faded out the x so it suggest 3 longer life...lol I thought it had three bits in it. You have to look on the back at the bottom where they put a one and the word bit is about 1/16" tall. Not illegal, but fooled me. I would never pay that much for one bit. No more roto bits for me :).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by waste of money thing broke 10 seconds after using with pressure placed on it to take out edges of tile not even to cut it moreover it was softer stone tile not porcelain or granite/marble would take it back to get money back but do not have the time to play games with these types of things February 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by useless bought it to aid with cutting precise holes in tile. absolutely useless. sandpaper and fingernail file would've worked better. September 3, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cuts Tile It cuts perfectly fine through most ceramic tile and soft stone, but does not cut things like porcelain, granite, or hardened thinset. Use it properly, and it works great. August 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement sent by Rotozip due to customer complaint, works well I was given this bit by Rotozip as a replacement for a 1/8" tile bit that snapped when I tried to do a cutout in incorrectly mounted Hardiebacker 500 cement board with it. I have not used this since for Hardiebacker 500 (.41" thickness) cement board, but I have used it to do cutouts in Hardiebacker 1/4". It works very well for cutouts, if you're careful to slowly tilt the running bit into the cement board to start your cut instead of plugging it straight in (Rotozip has an instructional video that covers this tool and others on YouTube). I was careful to do my cuts in three passes at increasing depth. The bit felt sturdy enough to but through the cement board all at once, but having had the 1/8" bit snap on me at 11,000 rpms, I didn't want to repeat the experience. All in all, it's a very good bit for quite a few problem cutouts in cement board. June 20, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do Not Buy This Bit!!!!! purchased bit to notch-out a single ceramic floor tile to fit around the locking mechanism on the bottom of a sliding glass door. The cut was only 1/2"deep into the side of the tile and about 3" in length. I started by cutting grooves about 1" apart down the length of the cut. At about 6 cuts the bit was no longer effective and, when I applied more pressure, it snapped off! Useless! It's a lot of money to pay for a product that does not perform as advertised! May 17, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by drill sideways I used this to cut inside steel tubing which was otherwise inaccessible. It allowed me to make an indentation which I could then plant a standard metal drill bit to finish the job. I used this tool for material for which it was not intended, and it still worked, but it snapped in half from too much sideways pressure, so I did not really get my money's worth out of it. May 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good purchase and the price was great This tool was a replacement for an older tool we already had. It is a very practical tool and has a wide variety of uses. June 9, 2015
