Another interesting question arises here as well:
What are the benefits of a IR (Impulse response) reverbs, compared to regular digital reverbs?
AFAIK they are meant to model the actual 3 d space and it's physical properties along with (in some maybe not all cases) also allowing you to define where the locus point is for the verb mic.
Flux have a new reverb out and as Flux are generally very good vsts it should be worth a look.
Otherwise Lexicon's own emulation of its hardware verbs is great but expensive. Hardware wise the usual suspects - Lexicon, Eventide, Yamaha and Bricasti are all worth checking out.
If you're short of cash SIR do quite a nice IR.
