From the guitarist's standpoint my favourite was a small and simple unit made by Guyatone, Micro Delay MD 2. It sounded so good that the guy I sold it to called me after trying it out just to share his delight and he kept talking about geniuses who invented this stompbox for a pretty long time :)

These are really good FX boxes in my opinion. Had a few Micros and had no complaints.

Now I use AdrenaLinn for delays with my guitar and I like the ability to have it synced to midi clock a lot. That's a very interesting box in general. You should check it out (not only if You play guitar)

so, 1000ms = 1 second, right?
if so, many popular pedals seem to offer little delay time.. like the DD3 with 2 seconds or so..
also, just so I don't make any mistakes here: by delay time, do you mean the time it takes before the sound "dies" out, or the time interval between each repeat? this bugs me a little, cand I don't see the appeal for a pedal with max delay time of only 1-2 seconds..

Usually it means the max. time between each repeat.

any unit that can do upwards of 500ms or more will be versatile enough for most apps short of looping phrases and such.

And one of the best-sounding I've come across is that little old Guyatone MD-2. Just delicious in every way, if limited. RE-201 Space Echo is the dubby freak-out delay echo fantastique, but mechanics put tape machines on a whole different plane.

Amen. I had one of those years back and I loved it. However, those ToneLok pedals are bad build quality and I was using it every other night in a band as a guitarist so it finally died from getting stomped too much. Which leads me to this:
Carey M wrote:Anyone (aeon?) had any experience with the analog Ibanez rack delay? AD202 or something... I'm looking to get something rack-mountable and all those VRS23s have disappeared from eBay.
Because I like/missed my DE7 so much, but I was getting into rack gear I bought one of these

(that exact one fact)
but I haven't got to play with it yet. I'll let you know how I like it here is this thead when I do though.

PS - The self osciallationon the de7 is AMAZING! I used to use it as a "guitar solo" I liked it so much.
so what do I put down here now?

Does the Adrenalinn do reverse delay?

No. As a delay unt is very simple. What is unique is the delay time (You can easily set two-bar long repeats in reasonable tempos) and midi-syncing. Other than that it's pretty straightforward.

I don't know about the Adrenalinn III, but the two has an annoying design quirk where the feedback path is cancelled when you change the delay time, so there are a whole lot of effects you can't use it for.

I'd really like to try out the Eventide Time Factor delay, it looks great.

If I didn't already have the MF-104z and Deluxe Memory Man, I would definitely buy that Eventide delay. I just want a delay pedal that loops and does reverse. Don't really need it though, it would just be nice to have.

yamaha e1005 answers all my dub needs.

otherwise, lexicon lxp-1's delay preset number 2 is perfect for vocals, and the dan-echo is it for most guitar tracks.

I'm not really a big fan of the new eventide delay pedal. I think it does a pretty poor job of vintage/tape emulations. The only delay effect that I like on it is the reverse delay. I haven't tried the loop function yet however.....

For a delay unit, I think it is pretty tame. I guess if you want a clean, tame, delay pedal, this may be the device for you. I like my ensoniq dp*'s delays much more.

Is the Boss DD6 the cheapest delay that does reverse?
