the freud SD200 is what i use and it is awesome! incredible in hard wood as well as soft and with a great price. if you are looking for more of a higher end dado i would recommend the CMT or the FORREST.
the freud i speak of is an awesome blade set (but the only one i have ever used) and i couldnt be happier with it!

I have the Jesada Joint master and couldn't be happier. I like having the 3/32" chipper so I can cut the correct width dado's for plywood. Any dado set with only 1/4" chippers will not cut plywood dado's that fit properly.
I have the Freud 8" and it works perfectly. I sis have one problem in the beginning with the arbor on my 2424. The left most blade droped just a little because of the way Ridgid manufactured them at the time. They sent me a new one and the problem is fixed. Since you have the newest model of the 2424 you will not have any problems. I have used my full stack just to try out the power and it performed flawlessly.
I have the freud SD208 and it seems to work well. I have noticed that the outside blades cut a little deeper on the outside, quite noticeable when two cuts overlap. If you look close on a finger joint you might see it. Otherwise makes great cuts. Does anyone else have this problem with a 208 or other dado sets, is this normal?
