The "break at the hips" form is not used by everyone, and can change an inexperienced lifter's form without them knowing.

I do not break at the hips, nor does Eric Lilliebridge. We are break at the knees squatters.

Point being, a beginner rarely knows of these differences, nor how to adapt to the unique changes that come from box squatting. Not everyone is a hip break, low bar squatter. Not everyone has to be. Box squats push you in that direction. They can change a lifter's form without them realizing it. Therein lies the major problem with box squats for me.
