The QO is the high end panel with a copper buss. The breakers also have the Visi-trip indicator that shows a orange flag when tripped.

The Homeline panel has an aluminum buss.

The breakers are not interchangeable between panels.

They are both 20 circuit panels. The QO has a copper bus as opposed to aluminum in the homeline.
The homeline is a 'value pack and includes 5 breakers.

The QO's a Cadillac. The Homeline's a Chevy. Both do the job. The QO has a few nicer features.
