Best 8" Diamond Blade

I have just purchased a QEP bridge saw that has an 8" blade in it. I have been advised that the included blade will not last very long and should be replaced. I am laying about 400 sq ft of tile and will be cutting 16" tiles in half for an outside border and then laying the inside diagonally so I will need to make a ton of cuts. Any suggestions on an 8" blade and where is the best place to get them. I am in Orange County, CA and can pick up local or can order online. Thanks to all!

The best blade depends on the type of material you are cutting. I just put down about 150 square feet of porcelain tile after purchasing a hot dog blade from the TYW folks(click on the link at the top of the page) and couldn't be happier. It is still cutting nice clean cuts even with my cheapo MK wet saw. Ask them they can tell you the best blade for the job you are doing, and their prices are good.
