    Sounds pretty cheap. Any good monitor should shut down if given the wrong parameters to protect it.

    svgatextmode broke my monitor
    I was messing around and doing stuff with svgatextmode
    without reading the manual/documentation, and when i did
    something with a messed up "clocks" line my monitor broke
    and now i have to get it returned. So be careful, and make
    sure to read the documentation before you use it, or else
    you might break your monitor too.
    Although, it was a very cheap monitor.
