Default Smith Machine Bench Press vs. Chest Press Machine

I've been doing Chest Press Machine and Shoulder Press Machine in my
routine. I KNOW it's better to do Free-Weight Bench Press & Overhead
Press instead of these.

My question, however, is this:

Today I did a Bench Press & Overhead Press with the Smith Machine (the
one that allows you to "lock in" the bar if you are having trouble)
instead of the CP Machine & SP Machine.

QUESTION - Will I get better overall benefit by doing the Bench Press
& Overhead Press on the Smith Machine (than CP Machine & SP Machine)?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
