I could not find the Mitsubishi SD280U to compare, but the NEC N510 looks good:

NEC is the prefered brand for me.

Hope this helps

I would go with Mitsubishi for a single reason: Contrast ratio is a lot better: 2000:1 instead of 500:1 for NEC

In the end is your decision. For what do you to use it? Home or office?

In office, will there be any big difference for powerpoint presentatoin ? And NEC support max resolution of 1600 x 1200. Will that add any benefit ?

Of course is nice and better for higher resolution, but my experience with projectors in office is this:
-      no matter was a small office, where the distance projection was less than 3m, or a conference room where the distance was 5-6m, sometimes many people came and made their PowerPoint presentations using laptops.
-      Now, most of people had prepared a PowerPoint on their computers/laptops and only hooked up their PC/laptop to the projector and then just pressed Fn+F((5 or 6 or 8 depends by laptop) to activate the beamer.
-      The resolution on the PC/laptop is not usual 1200x1600, unless is a big LCD. Then for most of users is probably 1024x768 set up in their PC/laptop and when you activate the beamer it really does not matter that has the chance 12000x1600 unless your PC/laptop is not configured for that.
-      The weight is almost the same, the life time for the bulb is almost the same, the brightness is almost the same.

In your place, if I would have the chance to go in a shop -  so not online – I would go and try to see the difference in Contrast Ratio effect/parameter.
