The daylight test shot revealed very little noise, but the flash test shot displayed a fair amount of colored noise. Both had decent color, although the daylight shot had a slight magenta color cast and the flash shot was tinged yellow. There was some purple fringing in both images, but nothing too conspicuous.
Overall, the HP Photosmart M425 was better in the daylight shot than in the flash shot. I found the flash coverage to be pretty good, but it was slightly uneven, resulting in some vignetting.
