Below are links to full reviews as well as our comparison chart that lines up specifications, price, and features of other brands side-by-side.
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 a 3D desk builder to view our desks and accessories at all angles.
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 quick video about the importance of a sit-to-stand desk for 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.
Secretlab has released a new version of their MAGNUS gaming desk called the MAGNUS Pro, an electric sit-to-stand desk. In this comparison and unboxing review, we evaluate the setup process and functionality of the largest version they offer, the MAGNUS Pro XL. We also detail the order process, experience with customer service, and a "potential electrical concern."
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.
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.
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?
Secretlab sells a line of popular ergonomic gaming chairs and now offers a fixed-height gaming desk with magnetic cable management called MAGNUS. In this video, we compare the MAGNUS Metal Gaming Desk to MojoDesk for stability, functionality, and price.
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.

If your job description includes “other duties as assigned,” you can be sure that a significant part of your job will be other duties, possibly outside your experience and expertise. This is the fate of many professionals tasked with managing infrequent projects such as remodels. As employees increasingly return to the office, tech companies are finding a need to remodel to expand capacity, encourage collaboration, increase engagement, and simply compete with other employers with cool spaces that reflect the company culture.
If you’re the project manager assigned to the design and installation of an open floor plan, the first thing you should know is this: Help is available. At MojoDesk, we offer the free assistance of experienced salespeople and degreed interior designers who understand the needs of tech companies. We’re ready to work with your budget to help create a healthy, attractive space that complements your workflow, enables collaboration and creativity, and increases morale and productivity.
That’s a lot to promise but we’ve proven our ability for decades. MojoDesk's parent company, Xybix, has been designing and building sit-to-stand ergonomic desks since 1991. Our shared design team helps manage projects for clients such as the Mayo Clinic, FBI, CIA, and FAA along with thousands of 911 dispatch centers across the United States and Canada.
Read on for details and best practices for designing and installing an open floor plan office. You can find a handy checklist for your project at this link as well.
Before you start planning your project, establish a goal—ideally, a goal related to people. People are the No. 1 asset of any tech company, and you want to keep them healthy and motivated for peak creativity and performance. Even if you need to remodel to fit more people into a space, your goal should be to create a space that is better for people to work in.
At MojoDesk, we believe it all starts with the desk—each person’s home away from home for the 8 to 12 hours they’re in the office. But we also know that many factors come into play—layout, colors, lighting, partitions, and more—and they all need to work together to create a productive workplace.
Open floor plans—that is, tearing down the walls—came about in the 1950s and 1960s for both aesthetic and political reasons. Clean, open spaces look cool, encourage communication and collaboration, and discourage top-down hierarchy. Plus, without offices and doors, you can fit more people into the same space.
Due to the lack of privacy and quiet spaces for concentration, however, open floor plans began morphing into cubicle farms. Inexpensive and customizable cubicles were popular with management but deplored by employees who felt trapped in a maze of small noisy spaces. By the 1990s, as computers got smaller, people were less tied to desks and open offices started overtaking cubicles.
Today, nearly three-quarters of modern offices prefer open floor plans in the belief that fewer divisions foster the spontaneous interactions and collaboration that enhance productivity and lead to creative solutions. In addition, open floor plans can provide tech companies with a competitive edge in recruiting. According to Ingenuity General Contractors: “Mark Zuckerberg and Jeff Bezos know that ‘cool’ offices aren’t just fun, they are smart business. These modernized, mostly open spaces aren’t just designed to look good in brochures and magazines (which they do). They’re also important to attract top talent—and help employees perform at their best once they’ve been hired.”
Today, practical considerations temper the open office floor plan. Over the last decade, we learned that people still need quiet spaces for concentration and private spaces for confidential work and communications. During the pandemic, we learned about social distancing. And as people are returning to the office, we’re learning about hybrid work and hot desks.
All these new considerations mean you’re no longer thinking about a 1:1 ratio of person to desk—so you can actually purchase much cooler desks for those you do need. You may need larger community spaces such as kitchens, board rooms, and social areas, along with accommodations for privacy. As you plan your project, consider the following best practices—and don’t forget that help is available!
Take a look at just two clients who trusted us with significant projects—Globus and Edison Interactive. Both companies appreciate the innovation and quality of MojoDesk along with the expert service provided by our designers.
When the travel company Globus need to reconfigure its offices to fit more people while still offering privacy, Facilities Manager Mark Liveris turned to MojoDesk. “We bought 175 MojoDesks in three different phases, doubling our capacity,” says Liveris. “We also added storage, acoustic panels, and cable management. I would recommend MojoDesk for any of our future needs.”
Software company Edison Interactive relied on MojoDesk to help remodel an open office for 30 engineers. “Most of the time, I love to be able to stand and get all my work done,” says Curtis Evans, Director of Sales, who recommends MojoDesk for anyone who sits at a desk all day, whether working from home or an office. Evans appreciates the quality compared to typical office furniture: “The composite material these are made out of is much more durable it stays cleaner. It just feels like a much higher quality construction.”
