For gamers this might be true. I'm not sure that same argument holds for watching movies or shows. I also think that very small "retina" density displays handle resolution scaling much better than larger screens.

Yes this is a quality vs performance thing from my view that aside scaling is not an issue for me if it were not for the input lag otherwise it looks fine to my eyes

My mother in law has that exact tiny TV. Are they popular? They do seem a bit on the small side.

13 inch Mitsubishi CRT with only coaxial connection during the summer in my basement on the couch with a blanket playing some SNES/N64.

I immediately remember this exact thing in my cousin's basement for so many hours whenever my family visited. The color saturation was cranked and bleeding but I always thought it was beautiful.
