In that price range, you can pick up a Roland SRV-330. Another cheaper 'verb that has decent Halls and Plates is a Lexicon Reflex; it uses the same Lexichip as the PCM 81 but please understand it doesn't have the same decay/delay lines or flexibility of the PCM 81. Some of the lower end TC Electronic 'verbs are decent as well but again, they don't have the same decay/delay lines or flexibility of their bigger brothers. With 'verbs, you get what you pay for.
Of course, you could always build your own reverb: ProSoundWeb | Building Your Own Plate Reverb: By Bob Buontempo pg. 3
