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.

Thinking of setting up a gaming room in your home or an entrepreneur looking to open an eSports Gaming Center? One of the most important parts of a proper gamer desk setup is an adjustable height standing desk, like Mojo Gamer Pro, for health, focus and comfort.
It’s one of the hottest trends, not only in the U.S. but globally. The video gaming center idea is exploding! It’s a place where gamers can gather to multi-play and compete with other gamers---either individually or in team-play.
In the Denver area, where MojoDesk is located, there are several such as the massive 18,000 square foot LocalHost in Lakewood offering 110 professional-grade gaming computers (specs: i7 8700k CPU, GTX 1080 GPU, 16 gigs of RAM, 240hz monitors) and Gameworks in Stapleton.
There are also companies, like Mile High eSports in Denver that are gaming event organizers handling the logistics, equipment, marketing, staffing, production, and execution of gaming eSports competitions.
Today’s player doesn’t have to look far to find a local competition to participate in. And for the viewing fan, check your local television listings for national and international championships: there are several such competitions each year.
Video gaming has become an arena sport, as well. In 2015, the first indoor eSports Arena was opened in Santa Ana, California --- accommodating up to 1400 people. Since then, dozens of arenas have opened up around the world hosting huge gaming competitions.
If you’re one of those entrepreneurs seriously considering putting together a gaming room, you’ll find a lot of advice on the internet about what to do and what not to do. But most experts are in agreement concerning the basics - and one of the foremost basic needs is a good gaming desk.
The best gaming desk available is the MojoDesk Gamer Pro. It’s a desk built for the hardcore gamer. It’s rugged. It’s durable. And it’s designed and built to eliminate the bounce and rocking motion inherent in video gaming while keeping the player comfortable and alert.
The height is adjustable from 24” to 50.25” and accommodates players from 4’9” to 6’6”. It has an easily accessible rocker switch that allows you to change the desktop height on the fly. Or you can preset up to 4 heights for a quick change of position. With an easy to read LED readout, you’ll always know where the desktop is set. And a built-in Tip Prevention Sensor works to help the occupied player when moving the desktop: it stops the movement if any obstacles are encountered.
The Mojo Gamer Pro comes with a carbon fiber desktop that compliments your equipment and serves as a mouse pad as well. The leading edges are beveled to provide ergonomic comfort for the user during gameplay, and the CPU Hanger and Monitor Arm help declutter the desktop. And, with a 30” by 72” surface, there’s plenty of room for all of the players’ additional accessories.
With the addition of the MojoDesk patented MagicSnap System, cable management is a breeze, and all wires and cables are safely out of the way and out of sight.
Standing Desk Safety and Health
Safety is a big part of the gaming experience. But it certainly doesn’t hurt (pun intended) to add health into the mix when preparing for hours of plan - and the MojoDesk Gamer Pro sit-to-stand electric desk is all about health.
An electric sit-to-stand desk helps with keeping gamers focused for the win.
Maintaining a healthy posture enables the gamer to remain focused on the game. And, most health professionals agree that to avoid the effects of inactivity due to prolonged sitting, standing for a while is recommended. Of course, during a period of intense activity, it would be inappropriate to ask for a time out to stand and stretch. This is when the Gamer Pro standing desk comes into the picture: with the press of a button, the player is standing, and the contest continues.
Standing will increase the heart rate and improve circulation. Muscles will get stretched, and joints get flexed, and…well nothing bad can happen from standing during an action-packed video game. Plus, it’s a great way to relax and relieve some stress. So, providing the opportunity for your players to sit and stand while competing is highly encouraged.
Easy to Adjust (memory settings are a plus)

UL Greenguard Certified
