What's more beneficial - forced reps, or going to positive failure?

I know forced reps are great for building size and strength, but I've recently read that completing each rep the same is also a good way. For example, the 5th rep should look like your first, and you should keep going until your form diminishes. So which is better - or should you incorporate both?
