Pretty much everything the above poster said.

Plus, to add to it: Procs

For Photons and Quantums, not really part of it. But Chronitons, a huge spread of those hitting enemies in a gravity well will make them even slower and more difficult to get out of it. Transphasics will hit more through shields. Plasmas will light everything on fire. Tricobalts...well, it's just fun to spit out 4 of those at once, and watch em fly towards the unfortunate foe.

Even on a single target, a spread 3 can be very effective, if for nothing other than a proc, and crew deaths.
