Best app or settings for converting MKV to mp4

I do hope that someone can give me some advice. I have a lot videos that are large 1.5GB mkv files for an 45 minute 'show'. I see quite often video files on the internet in mp4 format these days that are around 250-280mb and are of decent enough quality for me.
I have played around with iVI, Handbreak, Anyvideo convertor and cannot get consistent results - the files being around 500 - 700mb. Handbreak I am sure is probably the most accomplished - but what settings would anyone suggest for getting the compromise of quality vs size. iVI seems to have plenty of options. Could someone point me in the direction for some advice or even a website that might have handbreak presets to download!! I have tried a few of the presents of Hanbreak, but they do create largish files.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
