    I think the "with" in the second sentence is redundant but both have the same meaning and are correct.

    I’d say that phrasal verbs are slightly more informal.


    For instance:


    • The firemen extinguished the fire. (Very formal)

    • The firemen put out the fire. (Neutral-Informal)

    They may not always be 100% interchangeable, but in your sentence as shown here, you can use either of them perfectly correctly.

    Those sentences mean the same and are both grammatically correct and perfectly normal.
