This can be true depending on your viewing situation. Have you even taken a low resolution picture or video on your PC and blew it up to full screen? I bet it looked horrible but if you actually stood up and walked a few feet away from your monitor it didn't look as bad. The same scenario applies to high definition television. At shorter viewing distances larger screen sizes benefit most from resolutions like 1080i/p.
