The only reason I didn't automatically dismiss it as a typo is because buying multiple statues is a pretty common practice for you, but 10 statues....well, that was a lot even for you, lol.

Ikea Striberg 22" imo are the best. Clean silver half shell, fit the width of a Besta perfectly. Also has a light sensor if that your thing.

Problem I find with Ikea though is they are always changing out parts and require separate purchases for a complete light (power cord sold separately ).

I started with Dioders, when time to expand the Dioders were different and the light output changed slightly.

The Stribergs put out nice bright light but not white. I would say like 4500K ish.

I went the Stuva route, same as besta just a few inches deeper or something I was told. I chose to go with 18" T8 6500k flourescent lights 1 in each cube. Cheap and the light is perfect. No weird shadows and it's pure white, no yellow hue or anything. I love it when they are on. Here's a pic of the overall shelf with no lights on and a pic with one of the lights on.





I am going to replace that bottom one with a 6500k light and also a different fixture since I found the top 2 at a different store and like them more since they don't have the 2nd set of mounting holes on them.

IKEA Striberg lights no longer carried New Version Norrfly

So I have been waiting for my local IKEA to get back in stock the 17' Striberg led light bars. Long story short they are getting rid of these and replacing them with 17' Norrfly. It is basically the same light however the connectors are going to be different. Attaching pictures can see the difference versus 17' Striberg connections. Plus the 17' Norrfly requires a transformer to hook up all these connections on the new version. This transformer can only fit 10 connections.

To keep the same look on lighting.. in case there are any variations just bought 15 Stribergs and connectors ..there goes 400$ ahh well. I will use these in the future.

Aren't the pucks cheaper? Do you just need more light?

Sorry for digging up this old topic but I'm curious to know how much strip led light did you use for each Besta case? It seems that 1 bar on top is the average configuration even for the black one, but for people who use tab to separate 1 case in 2 did you use the same settings or 2 lights?
