If you own the hardware, colocation makes perfect sense. With the colocation you just pay for the space, bandwidth and electricity cost. You are not renting the servers, so each month you will save the renting fees. Plus you have more control over the hardware when you are colocating. You can use any hardware based on your requirements.
A dedicated server on the other handis bascially renting a server at the datacenter. The monthly rental fee includes bandwidth, power, hardware cost, support etc.
