Default Bench dip or machine dip

Which one of these will help me make more gains? Do you feel that it is personal preferrence or is there research behind it that one is better than the other?

I, personally, am a believer in do what feels right for you.... im not a big fan of the dip machines, i like Dip bars over the dip machines, i have been known to do bench dips i like them for burn out.
