Cisco ASA 5505 RAM – compatible modules

I’m a big fan of the ASA 5505 and deploy them in various scenarios, so I am regularly sourcing them off ebay and upgrading them. They supposedly take 148pin DDR 400MHz modules, but not all are alike. Below is a table showing the compatibles that I have found:
