Replacement jockey pulley for Deore XT RD-M735

Does anyone know any particular brand I should stick with? I've found a few aftermarket parts but they look like crap. Also don't want to spend more than $20 if I can help it.

I've used Tack pulleys on my XT, and $15 here: http://www.lickbike.com/sectionsubli...SUBSECTION=200

Instead of the usual journal bearing design, these have cartridge bearings. (I can't say cartridge bearings are better or worse.)

My experience with the aftermarket derailleur pulleys has been crappy, even when they've had "cartridge" bearings. The Shimano items are plenty cheap, and if you can feel the difference you're a better man than me.
