Type query versus _search within a specified type

Is there any difference between a type query and a _search performed within a specified index/type context?

GET /_search
    "query": {
        "type" : {
            "value" : "my_type"

GET _all/my_type/_search

Should they differ in some way, could you provide a use case showing the difference?

Thank you,
