Depends what your doing them for but typically I'd say the one that actually mimics the real movement more is always going to be more beneficial. Pin presses are good to do once and a while but I think overall you would get more out of board presses since you set up the same as you would normally bench and have the stretch reflex put into play. Plus its easier to vary the boards you use then the pins, but when you don't have training partners pin presses are safer.

Overall when in doubt to both, but I would do pin presses once a month and board presses once a week, or at least keep the ratio I used them similar.
