Difference between these brake kits?

Besides the rotors, what is the difference between these two if any?

They are both 4 piston brembo calipers and they look the same to me except for the paint. What am I missing ? Is one bigger than the other ?

The top one with the red calipers has slotted rotors.

Agreed. Otherwise, the calipers appear to be identical, minus the color differences.

the rotors are different, but for the money you save not worth it.
