If you are beginning your search for an electric sit-to-stand desk, the number of choices can be overwhelming. For the smart shopper who looks hard at a purchase before committing, we have video comparison reviews of our MojoDesk standing desk and other available options. Below are links to full reviews as well as our comparison chart (currently being updated for 2022) that lines up specifications, price, and features of other brands side-by-side.
If you are considering a standing desk, these video reviews and comparison charts will help you decide what options are right for you. One of the key differences of MojoDesk is the quality and stability of our adjustable height frame. All MojoDesk models come standard with a commercial-grade frame that lifts over 250lbs. Unlike others, our bases are all dual-motor with 3-stage telescoping T-style legs for ultimate stablity and include an LED hand control with 4 height presets at no upcharge.
But before we get into more detail, here's a 60 second video about the importance of a sit-to-stand desk as part of overall work wellness.
Both MojoDesk and Vari (previously VariDesk) offer a full sit-to-stand desk that meets BIFMA stability requirements, comes with a 5-year warranty, and offers free shipping to the lower 48--but the similarities end there. If you’re looking for stability and safety up to 300 pounds (vs. 200-250 with the other guys), MojoDesk is the clear choice.
The devil is in the details when it comes to building a comfortable workspace--one where you'll likely spend endless hours. Don’t underestimate the importance of choosing the right features, like a desk shape that suits your work environment and contoured edges for wrist comfort.
Our “apples-to-apples” comparison for this review is between the Evodesk Ergo Edge electric standing desk and MojoDesk—and the findings may surprise you. Let's start with issues of safety and health: two critical factors when researching a high-quality gaming desk.
Ergonomic comfort during long sessions of work or gaming is top priority. In addition to the damage that passionate keyboard users inflict upon the sit-to-stand desk itself, gamers and workers are also punishing their own hands and wrists. Both comfort and stability were key factors in comparing MojoDesk with the IKEA Bekant standing desk side-by-side.
Looking for the most environmentally friendly stand-up desk? Look for a workstation option that is fully Greenguard-certified to reduce VOC (volatile organic compounds) emissions into the air. Found in many everyday products and processes, VOCs can put your health at risk and create air pollution.
There are many low-cost standing gaming desks and the Respawn RSP-3000 is one of them. But how does it stack up for value vs. what you get with the more expensive Mojo Gamer Pro?
Whether you’re 4’11” or 6’6”, size matters when it comes to choosing the right standing desk. MojoDesk has the greatest height-adjustability on the market today, to deliver the best in health and comfort for users of all shapes and sizes. From reducing and preventing back problems to improving circulation, alternately sitting and standing improves both health and productivity.
MojoDesk and the iMovR Lander have several similarities, including a large adjustable range, compliance with national ergonomic standards and free shipping.
The areas where iMovR comes up short—namely environmental compliance, tabletop design return policy and price—can be significant concerns for gamers and desk jockeys on a budget.
Besides VertDesk only available in one shape - rectangular - the parent company of VertDesk does not actually manufacture the VertDesk itself, instead working with a U.S.-based OEM manufacturer. In contrast, MojoDesk has a large variety of shape options and made and shipped from our company headquarters in Denver, Colorado.
Note: All specifications sourced from competitor website specification pages as of January, 2020. Since that time, Varidesk (now Vari) has changed their ProDesk in the chart below in both specs, pricing, and name. The price below on the cart and specs are being updated. The list price of $695 is for the 48x30 Vari ProDesk which has now been replaced with the 48x30 Vari Electric Standing Desk at $550. We will have an updated review soon.

At first glance, MojoDome and the Room Phone Booth look like competitors. They have a futuristic feel, and they are both working to remedy the noise, distractions and lack of privacy created by modern-day open office spaces. MojoDome provides a flexible solution with a spacious sit-stand desk and retractable dome that provides for lighting, privacy and acoustics. The Room Phone Booth also provides for lighting, privacy and acoustics—without providing any meaningful space or comfort to accomplish work. Which one will enhance productivity? Read on for details.
We Americans love our personal space—in fact, up to 5% of us are claustrophobic. The MojoDome’s 60-inch footprint and 7 1/4 foot tall clamshell dome offers the space and privacy we crave along with the freedom to talk with our hands, take yoga breaks and do a little jig in an open space.
Within the enclosed space of the Room Phone Booth, you get about 3 square feet of space to don your cape and tackles your sales calls, PowerPoints and personal business. On the plus side, unless your last name is Bol, the 87.5 inches of height should be plenty.
CPUs may be getting smaller but monitors are getting bigger—plus, dual monitors increase productivity. MojoDome offers a CPU tower hanger and s 43 deep x 58-inch wide desktop that easily accommodates a large 36 inch screen or two standard 24-inch monitors placed with ergonomic and focal distance considerations. A cable management system keeps all those cords tidy as well.
The Room Phone Booth, meanwhile, offers up a 31.5-inch shelf corner shelf which is large enough for propping up a smartphone, tablet, or TV dinner. So there's that.
A lot of us feel like we live at the office. That usually means a lot of sitting. But with the MojoDesk desk, you can literally Stand in the Place Where You Live. Just press a button and the dome raises with the desktop. Kick that chair out of the way until your legs tire, and raise or lower the dome as needed.
The Room Phone Booth’s desktop is designed for you to stand, but you can’t really live in the little space.
Poor lighting can hurt productivity by causing headaches, eye strain and more. But the definition of “good lighting” is both personal and job specific. The MojoDome accommodates individual needs and preferences with a dimmable LED light strip controlled by a touch sensor on the desk.
The Room Phone Booth offers an overhead LED light strip for viewing inside the enclosed space.
Constant exposure to noise and interruptions can harm productivity and wellness. The MojoDome is designed to block out surrounding sound while ensuring professional sounding phone and video calls from within the space. The 12mm thick 100% polyester fiber panels are shaped for maximum acoustical absorption. Unfortunately, the dome doesn’t have quite enough mojo to stop coworkers from “wandering by” and listening in—so do be prepared to step outside or into the stairwell when privacy is paramount.
Nothing says privacy like a closed door. The Room Phone Booth’s 1.6-inch thick walls of plastic materials and breathable wool will give you the privacy you need for seriously sensitive calls.
The MojoDome is designed for one person at a time. But the beauty of it is the convertible nature. Maybe you and your next-door neighbor need to chat about a problem. Two domes down. Maybe you’re on a deadline and everyone around you is reliving last night’s game. Dome up. Stand-up meeting for the department? Birthday cake time? All domes down. The MojoDome converts your open plan office space into an “open as needed” space.
The Room Phone Booth accommodates one person at a time and offers no opportunity for in-person collaboration or engagement.
The MojoDome features built-in social distancing while the Room Phone Booth offers plenty of enclosed space for germs to grow. Cleaning is key for both.
MojoDome offers flexible plans to suit your needs, from do-it-yourself kits to full-space planning and installation from our experienced interior designers. With the Room Phone Booth, it’s not quite DIY as the assembly calls for “Two people, one tool, and under one hour.”
It’s not likely that your 2020 budget anticipated the need for social distancing in your open plan office. To ensure that MojoDome is right for you, try it out for 60 days and return it if you don’t like it. After that, our five-year warranty protects your investment.
The Room Phone Booth features a 100-day trial period and two-year warranty.
For $3,895, if purchasing the Room Phone Booth, you can give people a box to stand in. The box has power, ports and plugs. It has a fan and magnet board, and thankfully it meets fire safety requirements. But it’s still a box.
With MojoDome, you can maintain all the good parts of an open workspace—the opportunities for engagement and collaboration—while still providing quiet and privacy, social distancing, and wellness benefits that jumpstarts creativity. Plus it's a sit-to-stand desk! Pricing will be coming out soon and MojoDome will be released this October. Here's a hint on the price. It will cost MUCH less.
