I researched if there are any differences, so here is what I came up with...
The main differences I see aside from the model # changing is the color and a new 3TB Version. While the previous generation of this was all silver with a black edge, this newer model is all black with a silver edge. The New 3TB version ( model # WDBCGL0030BSL-NESN ) is slated for release this summer.
Overall Size of new model is a tiny bit smaller
Higher Capacity Available - Now Up to 3TB vs the older model only up to 2TB capacity
Optional 256-bit AES hardware encryption- Set an optional password, that only you know, to activate 256-bit hardware encryption and add an extra layer of security.
Now available in black (with a silver edge)
Same as Old Model Nothing Changed
Weight is the same exact at 0.50 lbs ( 0.23 kg )
Compatible with Apple Time Machine
USB 3.0 connectivity
Formatted for Mac OS X, reformatting required for Windows
3-year limited warranty
Same Data transfer rate and Operating temperature
USB 3.0 up to 5 Gb/s (max) / USB 2.0 up to 480 Mb/s (max)
Operating temperature: 5°C to 35°C / Non-op. temperature: –20°C to 65°C
None so far .....
Bottom Line - They are pretty similar so get what is cheaper, unless you need/buy the 3TB they never had one before or you prefer the new mostly black color to the older mostly silver color

In past seven or eight years, I've owned at least six external hard drives from Western Digital and have never once had a problem with any of them. They are very reliable, solid, and priced right. I've never had one break on me. The only reason I've owned so many is that they eventually can't hold enough of my stuff. I still have the first 250 GB drive!
The WD My Passport drives are very compact and lightweight. Perfect for students or professionals. It's not much larger than a deck of playing cards and even weighs just a bit more. It's ideal for adding extra storage for your videos, music, photos, and files, Backing up your files with Apple Time Machine, Securing your files from unauthorized access with password protection and hardware encryption. Its powered by connecting through your USB interface.
If you're a Mac user, this drive comes formatted in HFS, so it'll work for your right out of the box, no problems. If you're a Windows user, you'll have to reformat it to NTFS (or just buy the regular WD drive, which is usually same price or even cheaper and comes already formatted for Windows).
I needed a replacement for my external Seagate drive that just died on me.It was four times the size of this (at least) and died when the power adapter stopped working. This doesn't require separate power (powered by USB). The great thing about hard drives these days is the capacities are huge and the prices are also insanely low. The bad thing is this. Consider them disposable. Back up, back up, back up. I cannot overemphasize that. If you get three years out of a drive, you're doing well. This is a backup drive for me. I moved my home movies off of my internal drive onto an external drive and I use Super Duper on another drive to back up my internal (main) disk. This drive is used for backing up my movies and for Time Machine.
Right out of the box, I plugged it in and a window popped up and asked me if I wanted to use this as a Time Machine drive. Sweet! It's a perfect Time Machine drive and I like that they make it so easy. If you're using it for Time Machine you're done. But, I had to partition it first because I'm using 1 TB for Time Machine and 1 TB for my movies backup. Partitioning was quick, easy and painless. As I type this, it's running its first backup of Time Machine.
I don't know about the speed or reliability and I don't particularly care. As a Time Machine drive it doesn't matter how fast it is.. And, for backing up my movies, when (not if) this drive dies, I'll replace it and just copy over my backup from the other drive. I've lost many drives over the years but I haven't lost any data. Backup drives speed and reliability are meaningless. They back up in the background and you should always have at least one more copy of your data. When it dies, throw it away and get another one.
A three year warranty on a $100 drive makes me very happy. If it lasts 3 years that's less than $35 a year. Well worth it.
