I find that the two sentences differ only in the nature of the action - the first variation suggest a certain tone of urgency that fits the sentence well. The other contradicts it by saying he had completed the task 'within seconds' and yet the past tense is so blindingly clear in the njtt brings up a good point. It doesn't feel right to me in the way that the first one does, hah.
