A: The difference is whether you want to stress yourself as the writer/speaker (active tense), or if you want the information itself to be the focus (passive tense). When you say "As I mentioned [above/before/earlier], ..." the listener's focus is that you were the writer/speaker giving the information. When you say "As mentioned [above/before/earlier], ..." the listener's focus is more on the information because the person writing/speaking wasn't made clear. Another note: "as I mentioned above" and "as mentioned above" are used only in writing. However, in speaking, you can say "as I mentioned [before/earlier]" and "as mentioned [before/earlier]". These phrases are used in more formal situations like debates and proposals, and also in lengthy conversations with others.
