It's important to note that the video processor on the C10/638 is different vs. the other models. The "Natural" mode on these sets are not able to reproduce deep reds. Mitsubishi changed things up with the C10/638 models. So while they might be similar to the higher end modes, they are very different when it comes to their video processing and picture modes results. Here's how I would describe the picture modes on the C10/638 and why I consider the Brilliant mode the best.
Brilliant - Provides what I feel to be the best overall picture with deep reds and accurate yellows. The only negative is the picture can be slightly warm with some content. More so when the color is north of 32 for blu-ray movies and 36 for HDTV.
Bright - Picture is highly sharpened by default which makes it a poor mode to use for HDTV. But it does use a slightly different color space and sometimes looks better on a few blu-ray movies or sporting events (more accurate greens). This mode also produces darker shadow areas (more black crush).
Natural - The max. red is not bright enough to represent the full color range (reds are more pink like than red in saturation). This mode is the worst on HDTV but can work for Film based movies. The Natural mode is very close to the Brilliant mode but with limited color range. This is why it's not best for HDTV since the picture looks a bit bland, similar to water colors vs oil paints.
