Question about Xbox 360 pixel display

I have a question regarding the way the Xbox 360 displays pixels.

I came across some videos saying the Xbox 360 does not have a true 1 to 1 pixel ratio.

I then came across a video countering that argument saying the 360 is, in fact, capable of displaying a 1 to 1 pixel ratio, at least when running video.

I just wanted to ask if the Xbox 360 does, in fact, display games with a 1 to 1 pixel ratio (at 720p and 1080p) when running games.

I am close to buying my second system (360), and would like to make sure it is displayed with the common pixel standards in mind. Thanks.
