Although having chips on both sides of the module doesn't guarantee that it's high density, in most cases it will be.

In fact it's the opposite. When chips are on both sides of the module it is usually (always?) low-density. When chips are only on one side of the module it is usually (always?) high-density. When you think about it, it's easy to see why as in the later case, the same amount of memory is being crammed onto half the chips.

This is why I'm a bit perplexed as the user has said both modules have chips on both sides, which suggests low-density modules.

However, I agree with your advice and second the recommendation to go with brand name memory. :)
