Screen size is everything when it comes to owning a TV set. The bigger, the better. For most, a display size of 32 inches is the sweet spot—and nowadays considered to be the standard. Other sizes exist, and it all comes down to how much you are willing to spend. For a higher price, you can go as high as 60 inches, anything larger than that is probably for public viewing.


Resolution is the next thing that you should always look for when buying a TV. To be future proof, go for a resolution of 4k. However, if you can’t afford that, make sure that you get at least a full HD TV, i.e., with a resolution of 1280x1080p.

Refresh rate

The refresh rate is the number of times a frame is shown per second. It is usually measured in hertz (Hz). The standard is 60Hz, therefore; don’t go for a TV that is less than that. The higher the refresh rate, the better the picture quality.

Input lag

This is particularly important if you will be playing games using the TV as the main display. Input lag is the time it takes action to show up on the screen from when it was initiated. For instance, when you press the shoot button on your Xbox gaming pad, it might take 30 microseconds to show on the screen, that is what is called input lag. Compared to computer monitors, TVs usually do not have the best input lag, therefore go for the lowest that you can find.


Connections are crucial, especially if you will be using multiple devices with the TV. The most common connections are USB, VGA, and HDMI. Make sure that the one that you buy has at least these three connection types.

Flat vs. curved

Curved screens were intrlkwadnvlknaslknvlksdlvknsakdvasdvasdoduced with the intent to make watching TV’s more immersive and introduce a field of depth. The claim is that since our eyes are curved, then curved screens are much better. On the other hand, flat screens have been tried and tested, with favorable results for a very long time. The choice will depend on your preference.


Features of a good flashlight

Flashlights are one of the top gadgets that everyone should have with them at all times, yet, that is hardly the case—especially now that every smartphone has one. However, smartphones are at a disadvantage because their batteries are only reliable for a day or two. Most flashlights tend to last for months before their batteries need replacement. Here are some of the benefits of owning a flashlight.

Why you should own a flashlight


Given their size, most flashlights are easy to carry around. This makes them convenient in that you can always count on it at all times. Unlike electric bulbs or smartphone LED lights, a standalone flashlight is far much better when it comes to convenience.

Ease of use

They are pretty easy to use. All you need to do is turn on a button, and that’s it. Most of them are also beefed up with various features like signaling, light intensity adjustment, etc. All these features are usually coupled with intuitive controls, making it very easy to use.


Once you load a flashlight with new batteries, they remain functional for months. This is what makes flashlights desirable to own. In the case of a blackout, or you find yourself outside at night, you can always count on your trusty flashlight.

Qualities of a good flashlight


When selecting a flashlight, make sure that it is made of durable material. The most common materials are plastic, iron sheet, and aluminum. Aluminum is usually the best material given that it is durable and doesn’t rust.


When buying a flashlight, make sure that you get a size that is convenient for you. Depending on the nature of your activities, you will be able to find a size that suits you best. For instance, you are a college student, then all you need is a small flashlight that you can keep in your backpack or pocket—on the other hand, if you are a farmer in the countryside, then go for a bigger size, one that can provide enough light over rough terrain.

Light intensity

Not all flashlights are created equal, and to ensure that you get sufficient light, you have to watch out for the intensity that every flashlight has.

Water resistant

Simply put—electricity and water never mix, and that is why you have to make sure that the flashlight you get is water resistant. This is good to ensure that the electronics, mainly the LED doesn’t get damaged in the case that is used in a place with water or rain.
