Why would I want this over Authenticator app?
I would say it's more convenient than using an app because you just have to press the button to authenticate instead of copying or typing out codes from your phone. You could use a security key as an additional authentication method to an authentication app in case your phone was stolen or you weren't able to access the app.

I still have mine from the Wired promo a while back. I really like it, although it was the basic version. I have a USB-A to USB-C adapter and have tried it on my phone and I can confirm that it works.

Form factor aside, are they all the same on the innards?
The YubiKey 5 NFC supports NFC (Near Field Communication) and the other four do not. Take a look at their YubiKey 5 Series comparison chart [yubico.com].

Yubico manufactures hardware security keys for securing online accounts with two factor authentication. You can read more about the company and what they offer here [yubico.com].
can all the websites be secured by Yubico?
Or only the websites that require 2-way authentication?
does Yubico store the passwords?

Thank you.

Thank you.
From my knowledge, most things dealing with 2FA. Not entirely sure what you mean by all websites. For example, Google gives you the option to either use another device to auth, or Google Auth app or a physical security key (among other things). If say a bank log in has a 2FA but they do not offer the option of using a key, then perhaps you are out of luck (someone please correct me if I am wrong).

It clealy is misleading, if go to yubico site, it clearly state the third one wont be automatically added. Meaning if you order two, you will get two. This deal is more like buy 3 for the price of 2.
So when something is buy one get one free at the grocery store, you only put one in your cart and then make the cashier go get the second one, right?

Otherwise, how is this any different?

It'll work on websites that support hardware security keys for two factor authentication. If the site only supports 2FA via SMS or an authenticator app, you won't be able to use the YubiKey on that site.

Two Factor Auth List [twofactorauth.org] shows a list of the most popular sites and which authentication methods they support (SMS, Phone call, Email, Hardware token, and Software token). YubiKeys are considered hardware tokens because it's a physical security key.

Lastpass password manager supports hardware keys. You can use the Yubikey to login instead of typing the Lastpass master password each time.

Yubikeys support specific protocols. iF a website supports those same protocols, then you can configure it to work. The most popular protocol now for generic websites 2FA is U2F or U2Fv2. 5 yr old yubikeys support u2f and still work. Also, there are some other vendors who make u2f devices for $10-$20.

Few banks or brokerage support u2f, ime.

Additionally, be warned that most websites that support u2f mandate setting up an SMS/Cell phone first. That is a total failure in these days of sim cloning and google's validation app being hacked.

Last time i worked inside an enterprise, we used HOTP or TOTP protocols for 2FA.

For most people, these are $40 overkill devices each when all they need is a u2f device. Security nerds love them. i love mine, but it is used as part of my whole disk encryption challenge/response to unlock the storage on my laptops. i have 3 different yubikeys, each a different model. The cheapest would be fine for anyone looking to secure only gmail or paypal stuff.

Never store a complete password on any device you use to physically login. Only store part of the password, so you need to type at least 10 other characters to go with the 30+ characters stored in the yubikey.

Please.

Very poor, and easy hack.
Dude, did you even read the article...

"representatives from all five password managers pointed out that the researchers' analyses were conducted two years ago, and that many of the flaws described in the paper had since been fixed"

I have been thinking about getting this. Just wondering what's your recourse if the key is lost. Pretty sure sooner or later it's going to happen to me.
