Manhattan Prep says this-
Note that "compared to" and "compared with" are equivalent idioms from the point of view of the GMAT; either is correct. This split is merely an attempt to get us to waste time. According to some usage experts, these two idioms differ slightly in their emphasis on similarities vs. differences, but this distinction is not universally respected.

Is this true?

Compared with is usually referring to two objects of similar classification, within this similar order, the user is speaking of the differences between the two objects of comparison.

Compared to is referring to two items in different classifications ,in these differing classifications, the user is pointing out similarities between the two seemingly unrelated objects.

Hi Madhuri, as the discussion above suggests, you will be well advised to not attempt to do any split based upon compared to vs compared with.

What about "When compared with / When compared to"? I have seen many people debating on the usage of these two idioms and I still don't have a clear answer. Can someone help with these?

I can't find any concrete difference between "compared to" and "compared with". Experts kindly differentiate between the two.
