I think that you need to baseline what the max ISO you are willing to shoot at that's acceptable to you. Mine is around 200-400. 800 as being desperate, and anything over 800 is "I don't care I just want it", which is rare. Once you hit 400 there will be some noise, it's there if you look close enough and then at 800 you should be able to discern how much noise you are willing to accept.

I have to disagree with this advice. It is counter to my practical experience with different sensor sizes, and it is counter to my understanding of how digital cameras work.

It is a very common view, though.
