I assume your are looking at Mitsubishi's web site:http://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/theater.html
I can at least help with some differentiation;
The series that end in 8's, such as 838, 738, 638 are 2010 models.
The series that end in 7's, such as 837, 737 are 2009 models.
I believe the "C" series are "value" or budget models, but I am not certain of that. The base model is 638, then 738 has some step-up features, then the 838 is the "diamond series", which is their top of the line.
Since I am more of a quality minded person, I usually buy the smaller, top model offered, rather than a larger model with less features. However, that is not to say that the PQ is any less on the 738 series vs the 838.
You have to read each model and decide which is best for you. I don't think you will be disappointed with anything.
If you also monitor the 2009 model thread, it seems most of the complaints are about the "C" models (budget model?) that I mentioned. Even though you can get fantastic deals on them, I personally would stay away since that is what I see most of the complaints about. Or it could be that since their prices are so low, more people have them and therefore there are more people to complain. Still, I'd stay away.
I have yet to see anyone compain (too much) about the 838, 738, 837 or 737 models. I know I love mine. The picture is geat !
And as everyone else here will tell you, get the biggest size you can afford.
