Can anyone recommend a good 12 in blade for making general cuts mainly for molding?

I've read the blade that comes with this miter saw is really bad. But the saw itself is decent, besides having weight and design issues.

Good medium level blade, I tend to buy DeWalts on Amazon/Lowes - you want a fine-cutting blade, probably 80 teeth for doing that job. That sliding saw has intrigued me many times, but when you go from non-sliding to sliding, you introduce a lot of errors, particularly in the sliding mechanism. The blade tends to travel a bit, and I'm betting this saw cuts a lousy 45 degree miter, as my much-more-solid Hitachi even has problems, and I've had to make a tablesaw jig to get them just right. Buy with caution. Also, you might check out the Sears deal on a 10" craftsman slider (only marginally better probably, but it shares blade size with the tablesaw and that's less blades sitting around, plus a better return policy than HF).
