PS3 slim electricity costs?

I'm having to use my PS3 slim (250gb) with play tv to watch freeview at the moment. I'm wondering whether it would be cheaper just to find a stand alone freeview box and use that instead of the PS3. Any idea if there are any real differences in running costs?

Well a ps3 usually costs around £155 per a year i think to run.

What wattage is the freeview box you are thinking of purchasing, and how many hours per day do you watch freeview, and how much per KW is your electricity?

bound to be cheaper. A ps3 uses around 100-150W and a freeview box about 10-20W

I read it somewhere a long time ago but is impossible to actually know due to everyone using their console x amount of hours.

I read that as well - there's a siet somewhere that has all the electrical items listed and how much they use per hour (Kwatt) and you can work out how much electricity you use a day/week/month etc for each thing - as long as you know what your provider is charging you per Kwatt. We did it as stepson was using it all day every day before he got a job along with his huge plasma tv - and it worked out about £12-£15 per week extra on top of the usual stuff. So glad he got a job I tell you. Will see if I can find it and give a link.
