I would like to replace all the Halogen lights in my display case with some sort of LED lighting as they use less energy, create less heat and UV emission, but of all the varieties i have found on the market lately, very few if any... seem to be a simple, high output and affordable option for mounting under 4 wood display cabinet shelves in my display case.
My question is ... has anyone found a good setup for high output SMDs (surface mount device) LEDs for displaying your models that you would feel comfortable leaving on for hours without risking paint fade as with Halogen lighting???
Although i have no experience with these.... below are some of the items i think may work best.
Got them at Costco for $29 per set. One set is 6 feet long and can go at angles...etc. Perfect for my cabinet. The best part, there's a remote so I just aim at my cabinet, click, and boom...lights up like freakin Christmas
Here's some pics of it light up

That looks fantastic! I currently use tap-on LEDs that adhere to the bottom of my shelves. Very unsatisfactory as they only illuminate a small circle, and aren't terribly bright. This looks like the solution...if only we had a Costco in Shreveport (we don't). Maybe something from online...

Hey, thanks for the offer.... i am in north Lake County but SKF had mentioned in post #4 that they are only offered in Canada. Tupi suggested IKEA, i think these are the LED's he is referring to and i can buy them online: DIODER 4-piece light strip set - IKEA
there is one new set of the lights SKF has on Amazon.... but the seller wants $70!
I use a product from Ikea called ledberg. Locally it costs $19.95, consists of three strips of led lighting and a power cord, switch and plug. The led strips click together to create a strip 60cm or 24 inches long. One power unit can power up to nine strips of light. Each strip of lights also includes two clips so that it can be mounted to a shelf.
