I've been using this bulb for the past 4 years. I use it with an aluminum dome with ceramic socket and have it hanging from the wall. I also have it connected to a timer, so in all I never have to touch it. I suspect this is why my bulbs last so long, and I've never had a bulb die within a few months. None of my bulbs have actually made it to the 1 year mark, though. But that's when the warranty comes in--fill out the warranty card as soon as you get it, and I'm good for at least another 6 months.
I typically change to a fresh bulb in the fall to last through the winter. If it hasn't burnt out by the summer I'll just leave it since my iguana prefers a sunny window to a bulb any day.
I also noticed this lamp has a more natural sunlight to it and a good warmth.
The aquarium color is no longer being clouded by the yellow color from bulbs I used to use with UVA and basking alone.
The bulb itself seems to be holding up very well, I was worried because some people on the reviews got a "dud", mine is working good.
Lastly, some bulbs tend to burn the turtle shell, this one seems to be properly basking them without too much heat that burns.
