It’s been a while since we took a closer look at an affordable gaming mouse, but luckily Sandberg had us covered. The company specializes in a variety of budget-friendly hardware solutions, with gaming peripherals being one of them. This time we’re taking a closer look at their newly released FlexCover 6D Gamer Mouse which packs a decent punch for a very low price. If you’re looking for a new gaming mouse without too many bells and whistles, we suggest to read on.






At first glance, the FlexCover 6D Gamer Mouse looks like a fairly traditional mouse, especially when looking at the overall shape and size. What makes this budget-friendly mouse somewhat unique are the interchangeable top covers. You’ll get one standard cover in the box, making the mouse look even more like a standardized mouse, but you’ll also have a sort of honeycomb grid-like top cover, which also lets you look inside the mouse itself. When you opt for the honeycomb top cover, you’ll also see the LED lighting better, which in turn might spice up your neon-like gaming setup. With the open cover, you’ll see the inner workings of the mouse, and you have the option to see the Sandberg logo light up as well. With the closed cover, you’ll be limited to seeing the LED lights in the scroll wheel and the back rim of the body. All in all, the FlexCover 6D looks quite spiffy and classy, and you would never guess this mouse will only set you back roughly 20 Euros.


In terms of comfort, there is not that much to say. The mouse shape is fairly standard, and thus you won’t need any time to adjust to the curvature of the mouse itself. The open cover has a slightly different texture, but you’ll get used to it after mere seconds. The FlexCover 6D Gamer Mouse is very light, which we personally enjoyed. If you’re used to gaming mice with weights in them, it might take a while for you to adjust to a light device such as this.

All buttons are easily accessible, and even though everything feels a bit plastic-y, you get nice tactile feedback from the buttons. We loved the overall size of the buttons on the side, as it was easy to recognize which button was which, and they were also easily accessible for people with smaller hands. The LED function button is on the bottom side of the mouse and is embedded so you don’t accidentally press it.

The covers can be easily removed, so you can swap on the fly if you want to. If you use the open cover a lot, however, you have to be more careful of dust and other dirt getting inside the mouse itself. Due to this, there might be a bit more maintenance to keep everything clean.


  • Interface: USB 2.0
  • USB Cable: 1.5 meters braided
  • DPI: 800-1200-1600-3200-5600-12800 switchable
  • Key Lifetime: 3 million clicks
  • Sensor: INSTANT 825
  • Switch-type: Huano
  • 6 buttons
  • LED control button (13 modes + Off function)


The FlexCover 6D Gamer Mouse is a simple plug-and-play device that requires no additional apps to run properly. You connect the device to your PC and you’re basically good to go. From here on out, there is not really that much in terms of special features and functions we have not discussed before, except for the DPI profiles. You’ll be able to adjust the DPI settings of the mouse by pressing the button underneath the scroll wheel. This allows you to swap between the six preprogrammed profiles, giving you a fixed range of options for different types of games. You can opt for a lower DPI setting when playing something that is very precision-based, while opting for the highest setting in an RTS title where you constantly scroll the world map.

The mouse itself feels durable and sturdy enough, and there are no real noticeable flaws. It would have perhaps been nice to have a few more programmable profiles to ensure a more customized experience.


Sandberg’s FlexCover 6D Gamer Mouse is a great device for its price range. We might even argue that you’re not going to find many devices that are better in said price category. You have a few LED profiles to mess around with, as well as six separate DPI profiles, which gives the device an edge over the competition. While the different covers didn’t really feel all that amazing to us, it’s a simple bonus for gamers who want to spice up their setup with something slightly more unique. All in all, we were quite impressed by the quality of the FlexCover 6D Gamer Mouse.
