5x5s are cheaper and easier to find than 4x5's. If you are going to move them around and not have to ship/haul them any distance, they are better. That extra food of diameter is a lot more hay. 1200lbs vs 900lbs of grass in these parts.

I like the Vermeer. I have a 605H that I paid $2.5K for. Very similar to the 605F and G. Easy to maintain and parts are avail.
The open throat Deere's (430/530 and above) are good also but never seem to be able to find any locally at a reasonable price. Stay away from the closed throat 410/510 unless you are a patient man.
You will want a loader soon after you start messing with them. Makes it super easy to feed. Fire up the tractor, grab a bale, pull the twine and dump it into the round bale feeder, shut down and go in for coffee. All in about 5-10 min max.

on edit - one more thing. I run mine with a 65 hp Deere 2550. So your Deere 2640 has enough power to do the job on the Vermeers we have discussed. Not sure about the newer ones, though. Mine uses dual SVCs so check to make sure you have enough ports. IF not, you can use a port switch. The two ports are not used at the same time.
