Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bucky Diablo Blades
I started using Diablo blades and have gone back to no other. I use them for all my saws.
The blades cut faster, last longer and have a very small kerf.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Blademan Very good product
This product is sharp and cut very clean lines and does appear to be able to cut through nails just as the product manufacturer said. Just make sure you are using eye protection when operating the saw.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by joelav22 Best for veneered plywood and smooth cross cuts, not the best all around
For it's intended purpose, this blade is awesome. I use it to break down large sheets of (expensive) laminated plywood into smaller, more manageable sizes. For this purpose, the 40 tooth blade is amazing. Tear out is almost non existent; and that is without taping the cut or using a sacrificial backer board.
Breaking down rough cut lumber is a different story. I actually purchased a 24 tooth blade for that. This blade will give you a bit of resistance compared to a lower tooth count blade, and you won't be able to power through the cut as fast. Since I am just rough cutting lumber to be prepared by my jointer, table saw, and planer, I do not need a mirror smooth cut. This blade is also holding up quite well. I have cleaned it a few times, but it is not dulling on me yet at all.
In summary - buy this blade if you regularly cut veneered sheet goods, or require a nice, polished cross cut with little tear out. For simply breaking down lumber, general framing and construction work, a lower tooth count blade will give you better results and make you circular saw work a little easier.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jason31 Try this 7" blade on your table saw!
On a whim, I put this 7" blade on my 10" table saw. What I discovered was amazing. The smaller size allowed a much smaller kerf than the 10" version of this blade. This small kerf has kept this blade from ever getting pinched by the wood. I can rip 4/4 walnut without bogging down the motor or pinching the blade. Also makes better cuts on plywood sheets. The smaller size also causes less kick back, making the table saw a little safer.
The price is also half the 10" version so you can change twice as often and keep the sharpest blade possible.
In this era of plywood sheet goods and pre-sawn lumber, a large blade on the table saw is rarely needed.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Enginerd The best blade I've ever used.
I used this on a track saw to make furniture. It allowed me to make full depth cuts without bogging down the saw and causing burn marks on the wood. I tried to see if a 60T version of this blade would be smoother, but all it did was bog down and burn the wood. This blade allowed me to make cuts that I could then glue edge-to-edge without having to plan or joint smooth. A huge time saver and great do-it-all blade that works well making pludge cuts on a track saw or cutting thin plywood. Stays sharp for a long long time too.
