There's no difference inm performance. Features - see - http://www.asus.com/us/site/motherboards/Z97/comparison/

m.2 is a new kind of connector for potentially faster SSDs. There are sata and pcie type m.2 SSDs. Cuirrently the sata ones aren't any better than normal sata SSDs. There are also afew pcie m.2 SSDs - fast but expensive. With pcie M.2 SSDs you lose 2 pcie lanes. With sata M.2 SSDs you lose 2 sata ports.

The Hero is the big brother to the Ranger which is the newest entry to the ROG lineup to bring in a lower priced model. The Sabertooth is more for a business type build (which is why even though it's a Z97 and should be cable of 3000+ support in DRAM they advertise it to 1866, it's designed more for being a rock stable platform than an enthusiast/gaming type platform
 
The Sabertooth is better suited as a workstation motherboard with Xeon CPUs and such, but it can work well for gaming also with advanced cooling and fan control. Its big brothers, the Mark 1 and Mark S editions, expand upon that and also add dust removers. It's a highly durable motherboard and can play nice with even the largest fan CPU coolers and two R9-290Xs. If you need more RAM speed and M.2, though, and don't care about the red design, then get the Maximus VII Hero.
