Shimano Wheelset question

Can someone explain to a thicko like me what the difference is between Shimano's RS10, RS20 & RS30 wheels. Is it the depth of rims ?
Also are these wheels better than Planet X Model B's ?
I'm looking to upgrade the wheels on my Giant SCR3.

    rs20 is slightly lighter than rs10, hub housing glossy instead of matt, both 24mm rims

    rs30 heavier, 30mm rim

    shimano all have fewer spokes than planet x b, 16/20 vs 20/24, so some aero advantage, but planet x are lighter

    haven't used any of these, but if you are looking for an upgrade i'm not sure you'd feel any difference, they all look pretty similar
