… it’s thin kerf which is probably better
Better is dependent on your criteria. If you have an underpowered or low-powered saw, like the Dewalt at VHS, then thin kerf is most definitely a better choice because it only has to remove 75% of the wood a full kerf saw does. The downside of thin kerf blades is that they are more prone to chatter and heat deformation which can affect the surface of your cuts. This has been a problem with thin kerf blades in the past. Having said that, new blade designs are considerably more stable and, if it’s a good quality blade, usually fine for most day to day general use.
If you have a decently powered saw then, IMO, a better choice would be a full kerf blade. The full kerf saw plate has more mass so is less prone to chatter and heat deformation than a thin kerf blade. I would still recommend a full kerf blade on any type of tablesaw for accurate, good quality joinery cuts.
Thin kerf blades are also less expensive because they use less steel and carbide to manufacture, so that is a big selling point for most people.
