I used the nonsegmented 4 HF blade from the 3 pack dry and went slow around and around with some hard porcelain tiles and it did a decent job with lots of dust. It did take a while. Go slow and many passes of shallow grinds. Please use a decent dust mask.

Thanks guys. I may try the non segmented one as well. It just seems like the blade keeps bouncing around on it. I may need to clamp it down.

It helps to have something like a scrap piece of carpet or foam under the tile to absorb vibrations. Clamping helps. Holding a wet sponge against the blade can reduce chipping. I've never used harbor freight diamond blades, but I bet the diamond content isn't very high which would definitely affect the cutting ability.
