OK, but wash it first

Oblivious;4351454I personally subscribe to the 51% rule for pretty much everything. (If it's over half the price of a new one to fix it, toss it and get the new one)
That's pretty good advice, and a rule I usually stick to myself. Actually the $150 repair charge isn't the problem. It's when you throw in the additional $70 in total shipping costs that kills the deal for me. I will look for a local shop to repair it, but in the mean time I will also be perusing for a good deal on a replacement via the web. Perhaps if I find a good deal, I will just ebay the broken one in hopes of getting a small fraction of a return on the investment.
