Other than aesthetics it would seem that the main difference is that the Passports have hardware encryption.

Please stop with that nonsense. That was a pricing error and orders were cancelled left and right. I know you think it's funny, but it could be misleading to others, who don't know better.
The first easystore model (WDBDNK0010BBK-WESN) and the Elements SE model (WDBEPK0010BBK-WESN) are likely to be CMR/PMR drives (good). All of the My Passport models (WDBYNN0010Bxx-WESN) are likely to be SMR drives (bad) although there is a chance you could get one with a CMR/PMR drive. I was unable to find any information about the second easystore model (WDBAJN0010BBK-WESN).
Would love to see a photo of what this "proprietary cable" looks like. Please post link to one.

Proprietary USB cable.

Wide reports of it crapping out (to be expected with WD, recertified no less)

That said, good pricing for a backup I suppose. Just make sure its the backup to your backup to your backup, not your primary one.

Isn't it a standard Micro-B style cable? Like the $5 ones they sell on Monoprice, https://www.monoprice.com/product...e8237b0705

That's a USB 3.0 Micro B connector [wikipedia.org].
