The charts may show an "even" spectrum, but the internal reflector
reduces the amount of light you can get. The internal reflector does
NOT increase the brightness to any great degree and it blocks any
light from getting to a real reflector. And it costs $3 more!  See
my web page on lighting for complete details and luxmeter
measurements,
