    You'd be surprised. I just bought a power supply for my 4550 from Dell and
    it was under $30 including over night shipping.

    Yes but the price it would cost to ship it back, it would be cheaper for me
    to do it. Did not get the onsite warranty.

    When Dell ships you a replacement part, they include a prepaid return
    label -- at their expense.

    What Tom said. And, replacing the supply is fairly straightforward. You
    could post back here if you needed any assistance.

  7. You're talking about the US in the UK, we don't have
    the sort of consumer protection laws you guys across the pond enjoy! (ever
    heard the phrase Rip-Off Britain?)

    The OP probably *does* have to ship it back at his own expense.

    Nope, even here in the UK on the Collect & Return to base repair Dell Does
    pay the shipping costs

    I am not surprised. I can attest to excellent service from Dell every time I've
    needed a spare part to repair a system under warranty... Ben Myers

  11. I emailed Dell asking about the price of the MCE remote control, that I
    didn't order with my Media Center 8400. Three days after the email one
    arrived free of charge. I emailed the guy back and asked how to pay and he
    wrote back not necessary.
