That is probably fine as long as it has individual reflectors for each bulb.

individual reflectors, quality ballasts,and quality bulbs all make up a good fixture. one bulb won't put out the same PAR as another. they vary greatly.

It might be fine. Do you have a link to it? Find out what kind of reflectors is has, what type of ballasts comes with it and which bulbs are included.
