[Greenbuilding] Question about a window solar heater

I recently came across this interesting take on the traditional solar window heater.
http://blog.imehrle.com/2011/02/10/solar-heating-made-easy----very-easy.aspx
In discussing this elsewhere, however, someone mentioned that since it hangs on the inside of a window, it blocks sunlight from the window. That person thought that the heat resulting 
from the flow of sunlight into a room without any obstruction in the window would be greater than the heat resulting from the operation of this device in a window, which would have the incidental effect of blocking some sunlight from the room.
Is that correct?
