I find that zoomed bulbs last slightly longer, I bought 1/2 a dozen Exoterra bulbs when they were on sale at PJs (buy 1 get 1 free), and I have gone through all of them in less than a year.

I find the best value for money is to get a heat mat, those things last almost forever, or get a CHE (ceramic heat emitter). CHEs last for about 5 years on average.

Hope this helps.
