Are there any differences between these two ways of typing a shortcut?

Hi guys,

If I want to paste something as value, I can press Alt + ESV. That is, hold Alt and press and release e, press and release s, press and release v. It did the trick. However, I just found I can also press Alt and release it, press and release e, press and release s, press and release v. Both of them seems to work fine. I just feel the latter is a little bit slower and sometimes it even failed if I pressed the keys too fast. I want to know if there are any differences between them. Thanks.
