This bulb doesn't last for very long at all. I had it for a month before it burned out so the "lasts up to 3,500 hours" thing is completely wrong. I wouldn't recommend buying this bulb.

Crazy good for heat and UVA/UVB
I bought this just for the heck of it, in case my new ceramic heat bulb didn't do the job. Well, this product was AMAZING. After about 5 minutes, my thermometer in my 40 gallon terrarium read 90 degrees (150 watt), giving me my ideal temperature gradient. While my 150 watt ceramic read only 75 degrees, when the room temp was 70. My terrarium was meant for a chameleon and has the metal screen on 2 sides and the top, so for this bulb to raise the temp to 90F with 25" height, was crazy. I'm using this for a milksnake and even though I don't "need" the UV light, the amount of heat this puts of is worth it. Not to mention it only cost $8. I'm not sure how long it will last, but hey, it's not an expensive investment. Also, the light is VERY clear and great for daytime simulation. I love the way it makes my setup look.

Does not last!!
Light bulb box states "Lasts up to 3,500 hours." The one we purchased lasted not quite 300 hours. The bulb was on 12 hours a day and burned out after about 3 weeks. Maybe we got a lemon but for the price we paid we expected it would last much longer than it did. Don't believe the "...up to 3,500 hours" statement.
