ZooMed Vs. ExoTerra - UV bulbs

Everyone recomends ZooMed reptisun 5.0 bulb, is there a difference between that one and the ExoTerra model????

0.2 Leopard Gecko
0.2 Cen. American Banded Gecko

ZooMed has been around longer and has a better "reputation" IMO.

I will buy both for the UVB bulbs, but for basking or night bulbs i'll stick with ZooMed. I've used exoterra a few different times and the bulbs would either burn out quickly or when they did go i would try to get them out they would seperate from the metal base (wasted many good potatos).
1.2 Bearded dragons (Login, Raven, & Jean Grey) 1.1.1 Corn snakes(Havoc,Sable, & Kink0 1.5 Leo's (Psyloke (Lucky-male) Speedball, Domino, Rouge, Siren, Elektra) 1.0 Veiled Chams (Neo), 0.1 Rose Hair T. (Night Crawler) 0.0.3 Crested Geckos (Shiva, Storm, Beast) 0.2 Kenyan Sand Boas (Tigra & Cloak)

Exoterra is Hagen... Hagen's been around a long time, but new to the reptile scene. IMO ive never been impressed with their products. Zoomed has always been my first choice, if I even use a reptile related product instead of a substitution.

Honestly... I would go with which ever place gives you the longest guarentee. For UV lighting either Zoomed or Exo-terra is fine. I don't find that Zoomed has as high a UV output light as exo-terra does though and they are much more expensive. With my set-ups I go with a UV strip (exo-terra 8.0) and a ceramic bulb (they last so much longer).
In the words of a Ball python, "I won't eat it, but I'll squeeze it."
