I would like to see that too, my hypothesis is thee gain in LUX is due to the directional nature of the LED itself. Isn't lumens over an area not a point source?
While not a perfect scientific side by side, blynx is showing similar results with the receccesed lighting version of these. He has another cab the same size with CFL lights and has documented many grows in it thoroughly.
Each has its place and each situation is different. A vertical grow with one of these is not going to work, but CFL would. I imagine these working best in a ScrOG situation.
