    Difference is sometimes restoring in recovery mode when your having issues just wont work when DFU mode will. Also, programs like pwnage require it.

    Now, what exactly is the difference you say.....

    DFU mode DOESNT boot up the OS and so doesnt communicate as much to the computer (Itunes). Recovery mode is a much more booted state and can cause problems doing stuff.
