The lower one has "machined surfaces" that supposedly grip the sole of the shoe better. The other ones are all forged and all painted.

Heheh searched this forum to find out why too... I have the same question. I have the black one.. still uninstalled (sending it back to shop, they accidentally sent me two lefts ) Then I saw the other one for higher cost.. couldnt for the life of me tell what the difference is...

BAsically the color, really I suppose Maybe the edges are sharper on the silver ones.. whatever.. hehe

The plain Z pedals show use almost instantaniously due to the paint getting scratched up where the Z controls look better longer due to the better finish. The Controls honestly just have an extra finishing step.

Ahh I see. Now in my opinion, I can relax and know that my $106 for 661 DH shoes bundled with Time ATAC Z's were well spend. Just the ATAC Z Control from the same vendor (pricepoint.com) is: $99.98 For the record the non-bundle deal, the regular ATAC Z is just ten dollars less @ 89.99. I suppose if I didn't see the deal, I probably would have gone the extra $10 for the durability.
