Stair Lighting. Those little in-wall LED step lights that are about 3' x 5"... Do they *really* light the stairs up well enough to not miss any stairs if it's dark?

Just as a follow up, we ended up putting LED lights under the handrail and love it! Our electrician nicely "hid" them in the groove under the handrail. Even during the day, our guests always comment on how much they enjoy the way it lights the stairs. We even use it late at night for passing through the hallway above the stairs... just enough light reflects upstairs to see where we are going without shocking our eyeballs!
