thats the thing with every eldar unit. each unit has a very specific purpose. banshee's are for fighting marines and necrons, and scorpions are for everyhting else. with their high save, strength and #of attacks, they work well against hoard armies.
I dont have the time to redo the math here but I seemed to remember that howling banshees where better or almost equal to stiking scorpions when it came to the standard horde stats. that is a T3 and a +5 save. now like people have said against orcs might as well go SS but against even most horde armies like IG, Nids and tau (well tau arent really horde but there as bad stats wise as most horde units). Oh and allways striking first is sweet
