I can't say how the output from an Epson photo printer compares with your HP
because I haven't seen the output from the HP. I can say that the output
from the 1270 (or more recent 890 or 1290) is free of any sort of printer
banding in the samples I've seen. Those samples were made at work from our
own pictures - not the tweaked images Epson use for demonstration.
So yes, there's an advantage - the print looks like a photograph rather than
an inkjet print. There may be disadvantages - cost per page is probably
higher, and I don't know whether the orange fade problem has been resolved.
I use a 4 colour Epson 1160 which is fine for my purposes.
