Anyone using IKEA LED's for moon lights

I was forced to go to IKEA recently and saw that they where pushing LED fixtures. Some look very interesting. I know it's not DIY but mounting them and such would be.

Here are some examples:

http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/00119419

I know some look pricey but you can get them in different configurations, I just can't find the smaller ones online. Many you can "add on" because it uses one power supply and links them together. I couldn't find the favorites ones I saw. Most are only white (the color ones do various weird things) but some can be set to a certain color as they use RGB leds (I assume).

Love to see some pictures, I was planning on going with cheap eBay automotive ones but these look a lot cleaner.

Trust me, they have a lot of cool stuff. The lighting isn't as cheap as other stuff they sell but it's still cheap, just not dirt cheap like some other things they sell. They also have a bunch of LED replacement bulbs for regular lights, I think they have the size that fits the Fluvel Edge too. Trust me, I am not a big fan of IKEA, going to IKEA is a horrible experience for me, lol, but I was impressed with their lighting. Unfortuntately, some nice looking fixtures only come in the "soft white" that is the orangish incandescent color range.
