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.

COVID-19 is changing our daily lives in ways we could have never foreseen, one of them being the opportunity or, depending on your point of view, the mandate to work at home.
To help with this transition, MojoDesk is offering a $40 Working From Home discount on all orders $699+ and free shipping on ALL our products. Yes, even on already discounted bundles. Just use the code WFH during checkout.
For those of us who typically work in an office, converting our comfort-first homes into a productive workspace can be a monumental shift. But imagine the rewards! Shower: optional. Snacks: abundant. Air temperature: just right. Pants: what pants?
To help you adapt to work-from-home both happily and comfortably, we offer the following tips and images shared from our customers who use MojoDesk as an important part of their home office.
Temptations and distractions will abound when you work from home. But don’t abuse your new-found freedom; it will make you unproductive and leave you feeling guilty. Here are a few tips for creating a daily routine to maximize focus and efficiency:
Of course you need a computer, WIFI and a working mobile phone. Maybe even some noise-canceling headphones and a clean shirt for “video meeting” days. But what about the furniture?
Finding furniture that not only fits into that spare-bedroom-turned-office but fits YOU as well is key. Why? Because ergonomics are key to good health, comfort and productivity, and it starts with a good sit-to-stand desk. While a height-adjustable desk may not have been an option back at the office, employers like Shopify are now offering a substantial stipend for your purchase of an ergonomic home-office desk.
Desks that are too large are too small for you, require you to reach too far for your monitor, or compromise your arms and hands with squared edges hinder your comfort, health and productivity. And now that you work at home, you have a chance to change that.
Fortunately, there is a bevy of options in sit-to-stand desks that have a new generation of WFH desk jockeys—and gamers—reaping the benefits. New design features like uniquely curved desk shapes deliver a “wraparound effect” that optimizes desk space, minimizes unnecessary reaching, and adds ergonomic comfort to your work-from-home experience.
And hey, if the work thing doesn’t work out, you could just spend your time gaming.
Stay safe. See our cleaning guide below.
