Thank you for contacting Contractors Direct.
Diamond product vendors do not provide longevity specs due to the many factors involved when cutting or drilling into stone/tile (i.e. material, RPM, pressure, water volume, water temp, etc.). The hole will need continuous flow of water to keep the hole saw performing optimally. You may benefit from using a dressing stone to remove any glaze that may form on the hole saw.

The product was very easy to use and made the job easy
This is a high quality hole saw. I used it over a dozen times in my bath renovation project and it still cuts like new.
Of course, this is the only easy way to drill these smaller holes right through the tile.
I used the center drill bit because I could not remove it. The center bit is not necessary. Drill a 1 3/4 hole in a 1/4" piece of plywood and tape it to the stone. The plywood prevents the hole saw from skipping and chipping the stone. It cuts through marble like butter.
It is great for drillin faucet valve holes on granite and marble.
This bit did the trick. I needed to cut a thrid hole in my granite countertop to install a new facet. I first thought I would need to have someone come out to cut the hole bit after I saw this bit and read the reviews, I knew I could cut the hole myself. First I needed to remove the centering bit since it is not required for cutting into the granite. Then I used a piece of plywood precut with the proper hole size clamped to the surface to guide the cut. I add a bit of water to cool the bit and started cutting. I stop a few times to add fresh water but I had a cleanly cut hole in less then ten minutes.
