oe or after market power steering pump?

My power steering pump has been making noises for a couple of years now so i decided to change it out but the only thing is i can get an aftermarket one for $180 or a oe one for $410 my cost from dealer.I always replaced parts with oem i was just wondering if anyone ever had installed an aftermarket pump on there car and if they ever had a problem with it.

By aftermarket, do you mean an OE pump rebuilt by some aftermarket company?
