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 2021 comparison chart 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. Among other features, 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 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.
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?
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.
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.

Remember the movie The Social Network in which young upstart Mark Zuckerberg builds his business by setting up company headquarters in his house? He literally lived and worked, round-the-clock, with the smart guys who helped build the beast know as Facebook. In today’s golden age of COVID, Zuckerberg proudly touts his liberal work-from-home policy, but consider this: Would remote work have gotten the company off the ground in the first place? The mind reels.
Read on for reasons why collaboration and co-working will always be necessary, and how you can achieve it.
Every business is unique in its strengths, corporate culture, and workflows—as well as the growth stage it’s in. Some businesses are better suited for a work-from-home policy than others.
Perhaps your company is successful because management has invested in “big brains” who work together to design and perfect brilliant products and solutions. Industries like engineering, computing, and design have historically innovated their way to success by bringing project teams together, physically.
Perhaps your business is in the financial services sector, where cybersecurity is the lifeblood of your business? Phishing attacks increased by 40% in the first few days of the great work-from-home migrate from the office, and some smaller businesses aren’t equipped to deal with the level of security protection required.
In less skilled industries where workers are on the lower end of the pay scale, access to technology is the problem. Some workers who could potentially work from home, in fields like customer service and telemarketing, lack the personal devices needed to do their work. And companies may not have the margins to provide company-owned devices to employees.
Let’s say challenges number 1-3 above are non-issues for your business. Your business isn’t inventing anything new, you don’t work in a high-security industry like finance or healthcare, and you do have the financial resources to issue personal devices to all of your employees so they can work from home. What happens to company culture?
Company culture can be hard to replicate digitally.
According to Harvard Business School, Charles Handy, one of the world’s renowned experts on organizational management, refers to company culture as follows: "the soup we all swim about in, and that soup is thin when the ‘here’ is not a location and people are working asynchronously and perhaps not sharing a common ‘way to do things.”
Even the savviest managers of work-from-home teams can’t always overcome the challenge of limited (or no) social interactions between employees. This is something Microsoft management calls the invaluable “two minutes before and two minutes after” a meeting--unscheduled time that can bond colleagues and help move teams forward. “It’s based on honest, productive conversations and helps companies to identify issues and collectively form resolutions,” says Rachael Down of Breathe HR.
Forget what you’ve heard about personal privacy booths with names like phone booths and pods. While old-school inventions might place you in your own private spaceship for acoustic and visual privacy (desk NOT included), today’s workers require a privacy booth that does it all:
Companies like MojoDesk are working around the clock to create adaptable, affordable workstations that enable teams to work together in a shared space to preserve innovation, enhance data security, and protect employee morale. All while keeping them safe from airborne droplets that can spread COVID-19 germs.
We're calling our new MojoDome the "Swiss Army Knife." It's a convertible, all-in-one solution by MojoDesk that lets your employees be together for collaboration—and separate when more privacy is needed. Sounds magical, right?
Employees get the “best of all worlds” by creating a safe, personal environment that they can control for lighting, privacy, and acoustics, all with the press of a button.
