        I can't help you on the siding issue but for plywood the Freud D0760X and the D0740X have performed well for me.

          The Freud blades are good. Also, you can get specific plywood blades for circular saws, and they perform great.

            Believe it or not I like a cheap steel blade over carbide for a circular saw on ply. Smaller kerf, less chipout, and you just toss it in the recycle can when it gets dull because they're so cheap. Local hardware store has Vermont American.... about $5 or $6. Just make sure it says it's for finish cuts on plywood - not all fine tooth blades do well on ply. Since you're asking about ripping (cut in same direction as facegrain), it's even less critical.
