Boudhanath Prayer Wheel

The prayer wheel at Boudhanath Stupa was huge, close in size to the wheel at the Kopan Monastery, and was spun by a steady stream of people.

I wonder, is there any correlation between the size of a prayer and the intensity and/or quality of the prayers? If so, how is it measured? If not, I think I prefer the small wheels both for the aesthetic quality of having many works or art and to send off simultaneous prayers.
