|Same here. If I still have a valid warranty on a product then I usually use it and let competent people fix my stuff. Now on the other hand if I am left on my own (no warranty, etc) then I do crack open faulty gadget (be it laptop, mp2 player, etc).
The only item I do not let others touch is my motorcycle (-, I have a friend who works in a workshop, races enduro and gives me plenty of advices. Not only this saves a lot of quids, but at the end you do know that everything is as it should and that every bolt is in its place (you wouldn't believe how lazy some of the workshops are).
Trust is a weakness.
