    Which do you think is a better choice of microinverter output power? 250Watts? or 500Watts? What will be the advantage if I choose 250Watts over 500Watts? or 500Watts over 250watts?

    None of those are 'micro' inverters.

    As Nigel says. Indeed, they'll be quite chunky inverters ;).
    What is your power source? What load do you intend the inverter to drive?

    It depends on exactly how it's used, and what it's for, each installation needs designing specifically to meet it's own requirements.
