Why does my DVD look lower quality on a computer full-screen?

Most computers will play a DVD at the full resolution (full-screen) of the display. This display resolution is larger then the native size of the DVD. Therefore, you are effectively enlarging the DVD to a size greater that it's actual size. This enlargement may result it quality loss. How much quality loss depends on the original quality of the video and can vary greatly. To accurately asses the DVD, it should be played at it's actual size and not full screen.
