I sent in my 705 recently myself.
The mount failed, and it went skidding down the concrete. It had done this before, but this time the screen cracked and at first it was still usable, but after a week or two more of the screen stopped working and it wasn't usable.
$110 + tax I think, and I basically got a brand new Edge 705 back. The battery in my old one only lasted like 3-4 hours before charges due to being several years old, but the new one had a new battery, so that was good.
I considered trying to fix it myself, but couldn't find a screen for less than $55 and that was from a shady site in Russia. The battery I could find a replacement for and it's fairly easy to install, but since they were fixing the screen anyways (by replacing the entire unit) that was taken care of too.
