Default HTE - vs - HVLP

I just looked at a HF compressor add and saw they had a HTE spray gun. I never heard of it so I did a bit of looking and found this article. It says it gets 70-90% of the paint on the surface where HVLP is 60-70%.

It uses lower CFM too. If you can get more paint on the surface at lower cfm, sounds like a winner. Has anyone tried one of these guns? Am I falling for advertising or is this something to look at? Saving 10-20% paint would cut the cost quite a bit - if it works. Truthfully, saving paint isnt as big of a deal as a good paint job!
