For the TH-D7, TM-D700 and TS-2k i think it's the filters that are different for 2m/70cm and extra functions like Wireless and SkyCommand "missing" in the E version.

But for the TH-D7 and TM-D700 you have different firmware versions. The earliest have some annoying bugs an missing functions.
Some TH-D7 have proper NMEA handling some don't

The TM-D700 is in several versions so i would only recommend the latest firmware.
Theres also an issue with some TM-D700 not been able to use NFM and some lack 1750Hz and it's not possible to change this.

For the TMN-D710 i think the units are more or less identical in hardware. I'm not sure if the firmware is capable of adjusting the filters in A vs E version.
