When i decided to improve lighting on my desk i turned to Ikea. I got the Ikea Jansjo (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10128748) and the Ikea Lack (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60124272) and mistakenly threw away the receipt. I did like the Jansjo because it was small and convenient, but the Lack didn't give me the results I was looking for. So, I converted the Ikea Lack bookcase lighting into a Jansjo look-a-like. The modified Lack turned out to be as convenient as the Jansjo light and it was less expensive.
