Example: "When you compare Susan's essay to David's essay, you see that they both have similar writing styles."


Use "compare with" when you want to stress differences or create a juxtaposition.

Example: "When you compare Susan's essay with David's essay, there is a notable difference in the writing quality and style.

Ultimately though, nobody really cares which one you use and both sound natural and acceptable in every case I can think of.
