Sahara Data Projectors

In case anyone was thinking of buying a data projector...

4 or so years ago my school equipped a lot of rooms (I think at least 20) with interactive whiteboards and data projectors made by a company called Sahara. As of today nearly every one of the projectors has gone wrong, most of them a couple of months after the warranty ended, showing a double image with coloured fringes. It's probably an optical problem, not electronic, but the one time we tried to get one repaired they charged a couple of hundred pounds and at the end of it there was still a double image, just not quite as bad.

It may just be that we've been remarkably unlucky, but we certainly won't be buying them again, or doing business with the contractor that specified them.
