Smart-Eco will yield the best contrast and, according to my reads, the brightest image (which seems odd versus Normal but that's what the light meter shows on full field white).
If you are not bothered by the lamp fluctuations (pumping) then Smart-Eco will likely give you the more engaging image (and no reason to use Normal).
Eco has better black level and it is more obvious with mixed content than it is with full field black (at least to my eyes).
* Also consider that when in a non-ideal light colored room the more light you throw the more will bounce back at the screen causing 'wash-out'.
Anomalies like the one you mention can be heat related but difficult to say without seeing it in person.
