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.

MojoDesk announces their new top reviewed consumer and business line of 2020 standing desks now available at mojodesk.com. Since 1991, MojoDesk has perfected the design of adjustable height standing desks with a history of excellence selling to clients such as NASA, the FBI and thousands of 911 call centers.
MojoDesk is an electric sit-to-stand desk that is as beautiful as it is functional and minimalistic. Each desktop is finished with UL Greenguard certified 3-D NextGen laminate with contoured front edges for maximum wrist comfort. MojoDesk is supported by a steel frame designed for stability that adjusts up to over 50” tall with zero keyboard bounce even at the highest position. An innovative magnetic cable management system, called MAGicSnap, hides all wires for a clean, uncluttered look. Desktops are available in 6 finishes: American Oak, Concrete, Carbon Fiber, Obsidian Oak, Natural Maple, and White.
“What other sit-to-stand desk companies call innovative we've been doing for over 25 years,” said Barry Carson, co-founder, and president of MojoDesk and parent company Xybix. “Over the last few years the public’s awareness of sit-to-stand desks has increased but there wasn’t anything out there that was commercial grade and met National Ergonomic Standards. We’ve built MojoDesk to the same strict environmental, safety and durability requirements Xybix needs to sell adjustable height furniture to Police and Fire Departments. Plus, they look spectacular.”
“Government agencies are open 24/7. They need to keep all their employees healthy, comfortable and productive with multiple shifts using the same workspace,” Carson continued. “Our ergonomic adjustable height desks have proven to improve wellness, a reduction in weight gain, and boost energy and morale.”
MojoDesk is available for purchase at getyourmojo.com, Amazon, Houzz and their Littleton, CO showroom.
Summary of Features:
“Our previous workstations did not meet with the ergonomic needs of our employees and they provided no environmental controls or safeguards. The functionality was everything that we planned for and the aesthetics increased dramatically for our employees. The overall comfort levels for our dispatchers has been greatly increased thus leading to higher worker satisfaction,” - Red River 911 Dispatch Center.
“I could not be happier with my MojoDesk and the buying experience. They answered all my questions and delivered the desk to my office in a timely manner. Setup was about 30 minutes and was easy. I will definitely purchase another desk for our office team!” –Rapacke Law Group
