I agree with your opinions on plug inn reverbs. Expecialy considering that on my Pro Tools HD rig they can take a whole chip. When you devide 9 chips on a prosses card costing $8k and the fact that the plug inns ive tried except one(TL Space) dont sound as good as most $1000 reverbs I think the Lexicon is an excellent choice 8) .I have a PCM 91 that i use for almost everything.

The Yamaha SPX 990 or 1000's are good, or the TC Electronic M3000.

Ebay has a Lexicon 300 Digital Effects System V3.5 and a Lexicon 480L with LARC amongst a swag of others.

i use an MPX1 occasionally at work, its not a bad unit! don't get to use it as much as i would like and the digital I/O hasn't been working for me yet... on the list of 'things to sort'

My vote is for the Sony DPS V-77. 32 bit, 2 fx engines, 2 EQ engines, series, parallel or morphing and AES/EBU I/O. A bit finicky to set up parameters but once you've saved your own presets with the existing 200 it sounds really nice - smooth. Referred to as the "poor man's EMT". Only limited to 44.1 or 48kHz.

track down a sony r-7 or an alesis wedge reverb
the wedges are cheaper then chips ( pun intended)
i used one on a mix the other day, and to quote a certain forum maker
" whats that reverb ?.....nice.."
you will probably get one on evilbay for $100
if you cant make it sound good .... well
the r7 will be about $500

or my absolute reverb is still an ams rmx 16

i am not a lexicon fan, and i have had lots of them
i may be alone in that regard.

i had a tc m5000 , and sold it because it was always switched off.

i have a sony half rack ( v...? something ) reverb i would will sell for beer money if i can find it
it sounds cool but it is only half a rack
and the knobs are too small for my mits

i had an alesis wedge, the sound was very classy (i think its the same as the Q2?)

i sold it in the end because i didn't find the table top design ergonomic, didn't work for me at all - but might be perfect for someone.

I can't speak for the midiverb or nanoverb but I remember the Alesis Micorverb sounding great for it's size & price, straight from its presets. And at the time (10+ yrs ago) being one of the core reverbs in the mix rooms at Metropolis. I'm sure they're still around.

Alesis Wedge is very cool. They used to be about $600 new but if you can find them now they're a good little unit, sit nicely on the desk.

There's a couple of wedges on Ebay at the moment. But they're in The US and Europe.
