Need good nonOEM laser cartridge for HP p2015dn

I use the HP p2015dn for printing order tickets at my store. I have been pretty unhappy with the generic laser cartridges. When I find one that is pretty good, the next time I order the quality is not the same.

The problems we have are that the printing rubs off easily making our printed bar codes useless. The tickets we use are perforated and torn apart by the employees, which creates a lot of rubbing and wear on the printed ink.

The genuine HP toners (at 3 to 4 times the cost) work great!
Is anyone happy with a particular company's non-HP toners? I think what we have used in the past would be fine for plain old printed pages, but the rubbing that we do is the problem.

If all the cartridge companies are saying they are manufactured to OEM standards or better, why are they CLEARLY not as good? I'd love to save some money. We do quite a volume and I know several hundred other stores (we are independently owned franchises) that would also be interested.
A lot of these remanufacturing companies are using Chinese cartridges because of the price. If you're paying 1/4 to 1/3 OEM prices, the old adage "you get what you pay for" comes into play. You can't expect any quality at that price. We can supply you with a quality remanufactured cartridge either in the A version 3,000 page yield or the X version 7,000 page yield. It is also important that when you are printing that you make sure you set the paper type and thickness in your printer control panel settings in your computer. That has the effect of slowing printing down a bit so more heat is applied and the toner bonds to the paper better.
