Pause squats, absolutely. Box squats have very little carryover for most people who are raw squatters. Pause squats help my depth and nail my legs with extra TUT. They also allow me to get lots of good work in with lighter weights. They even relieve some of the pressure on my knees from trying to maximize rebound on my normal back squat.
Pause squats are hard and they suck. Most of the time the version that sucks more and is harder is probably the one you should be doing.
If/when I start using equipment again I'll mess with box squats. Until then, I'll stick with pause squats and kettlebell swings to build my squat.

Its similar to a paused squat, except all the weight is off you for a second. That way you really do start from a dead stop.
I will say though, we do paused squats probably in a ratio of 5-1 over these...

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
