Here is something I found while ordering some more goodies.
For those with a tight budget take a look at this.
I haven't done a lot of research as of yet but it just might fit someones needs and budget.

I see two problems that could affect anyone, not just an anal old broad like me. One, it has more places for dust to get in then the Titantic had for seawater after its somewhat less than casual encounter with that large ice cube. Two, how the big, fat, hairy heck does one hook up the HDDs to the power and data cables with that blank panel in the way? I didn't see a backplane in there or any way to get the cables in there.

I saw the pictures in the original link. There are all kinds of openings to let in dust and let out enough air to make positive pressurization impossible to keep out dust. They also don't show how to connect HDDs to their cables since there is a solid panel behind them.

Edit: I found this review with even better pictures. The case is leakier than I originally thought. The review ignored the problem of how to connect cables to the HDDs but it shows there is no backplane so I'm guessing you have to pull both cages out to deal with the cables. Not very impressive.

Edit 2: I finally figured it out. The trays are designed to hold the HDDs with the connectors toward the latch end. One would have to be able to pull cables completely out of the way to be able to pull out a drive. I am not impressed.

Looks like you slot the drives in from this side (Right Hand Side of case) and the connecting wires run across to wherever on your MB. This would be fine for me as I don't live where you do and have the desert dust. I do have a cat (Shadow) but fortunately even though I am allergic to cats he is not a great shedder.

I guess you won't be buying one of them then Lady F

But I didn't think you were in the market for a case anyway. Your special edition should be finished in the next year or 2 shouldn't it lol.

More and more cases are made that way now. In the past with hard drive mounted that way you had to remove both sodes to swap drives. Now you only have to remove one side. Cyrrent Phanteks cases have dust filters for every opening. Mine gets minimal dust in it.

Roger that. I was just evaluating it.

Or maybe even never (like, whoever really finishes a build?). Strictly speaking, this is still my first build; I'm just upgrading the case. I will hopefully make the swap in a couple of weeks or so once the humidity levels go up (to reduce static issues; it's bone dry here right now and I can't walk 12" without generating enough static to light up Phoenix).
