You can find some awesome boutique pedals too, but for the money the hardwire did the most and boasts the lexicon reverbs much like the Boss but true bypass and much cheaper. It is a tough pedal and well built. I A/B'd to the Twin spring and the HW's pedals spring and its close plus much more tweakable and versatile with the tone options. If you use batteries it has a cool circuit that gives you full power even as the battery is low, or so they say. Lately I use the SMS verb which is a 24 bit hall and it sounds perfect to me and is easier than hooking up another pedal.
As for a rack system, pedal or tank situation that is up to you. If you have a rack space and like tube driven reverb, I would go with the tubeworks system. If you are looking to save money and space the pedals work just fine too especially if it is for playing live or practicing/jamming.
