What is the difference between use SimpleRouter() and DefaultRouter() classes?

In the video about of Relations, Kenneth did:

    router = routers.SimpleRouter()
    router.register(r'courses', views.CourseViewSet)
    router.register(r'reviews', views.ReviewViewSet)

    urlpatterns = [
        url(r'^admin/', admin.site.urls),
        url(r'^api-auth/', include('rest_framework.urls',
                               namespace='rest_framework')),
        url(r'^api/v1/courses/', include('courses.urls', namespace='courses')),
        url(r'^api/v2/', include(router.urls, namespace='apiv2')),
    ]

And I have been serializing my models of this way:

    router = routers.DefaultRouter()
    router.register(r'users', UserViewSet)
    router.register(r'teams', TeamViewSet)
    router.register(r'fields', FieldViewSet)
    router.register(r'matchs', MatchViewSet)

    urlpatterns = [
        url(r'^api/', include(router.urls)),
        url(r'^api-auth/', include('rest_framework.urls', namespace='rest_framework'))
    ]

In this url http://www.django-rest-framework.org/api-guide/routers/ says:

This router is similar to SimpleRouter as above, but additionally includes a default API root view, that returns a response containing hyperlinks to all the list views. It also generates routes for optional .json style format suffixes.

You can, but since you answered instead of commenting, you might need to delete your own answers first.
