funny thing.. It's sensitivity is equiv. to the "old" Apogee 200 series but in practice (numerous discussion and comparisons on reef tanks against Li-Cor and the new 500 series) the "errors" don't really show.
Now if one had a hort. lit tank (heavy 660,430) it is very possible it is quite off..

Apparently the overshoot in high red compensates for undershooting the low red..
Sad too because it is just a bad choice of a high pass cut-off filter..
