What is the difference between this and Edgerouter Lite?
Physically I don't think much. This guy has a good comparison [youtube.com], but basically says that the USG and EdgeRouter Lite were pretty much the same hardware, with the main diff being the software used to control/configure them

As far as software is concerned, the USG is much more "user friendly" than the EdgeRouter Lite. Most of what configuration you must do on the ERL is done through CLI (there is a web gui, but mostly just exposes the config branches so you still have to know what you are doing), whereas the USG uses the Unif Controller software, and thus is mostly GUI-configured (although I believe you can still do CLI if you want to or need to).

The second benefit of the USG is that is plays VERY nicely in the Unifi product line. Since they all use the same Unifi Controller software it's like having a one-stop-shop to configure your network. So, if you are using their access points already (or plan to), then this might be a better option over the ERL.

Lastly, if you are planning to go with the EdgeRouter, read this first [ubnt.com]. It talks about which EgdeRouter products support which hardware offloading. Offloading will increase performance of your router, which turned on, as it offloads the processes from the CPU. I ended up with the EdgeRouter X SFP because I needed offloading on the bridge, which I found out is not supported by the ERL after I started messing around with it.
