The quote below is from ragfield's answer to one of these many similar 
questions asked in this forum:

   [...]

   * Use Highest Quality Vector Representation.  This should match what
   you see in Mathematica nearly exactly, but it will not be compatible
   with all viewer applications.  For PS/EPS this uses PS level 3
   features.  For PDF it uses features that are not supported by Apple's
   PDF engine prior to Mac OS X 10.5.

   * Use Most Compatible Vector Representation.  This will not exactly
   match what you see on screen in Mathematica, but it will produce a
   small file that works in all viewers."
