Reverb: Bang for Buck (Was: Percussive Loopers)

OK, so the gamut goes (limited to devices concentrating on reverb):

$199    Lexicon MPX100
$269    Roland SRV3030D
$299    Lexicon MPX200
$349    t.c. electronic M-One
$399    Yamaha REV500
$399    Lexicon MPX500
$699    Lexicon MPX1
$749    t.c. electronic M2000

Too expensive:
Lexicon PCM-91
t.c. electronic M3000

Many others I'm sure I've not listed.

I'm really in the market for a decent reverb.  Well, perhaps not in the
market.  I *need* one, but I don't necessarily want to buy one.  But what
are you going to do?  I've got an MPX-100 that I just don't like.  Plus,
there's the on-board effects from my Yamaha 01V, supposedly comparable to
the REV500, but still, I don't really, really enjoy them, either.  I'd
really like to spend less than $400, but could increase if the body of
evidence points solidly in that direction.  

Any opinions from the lurking gear hoarders present?  This is basically the
same question as asked below, with only minor revision towards specificity.
