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."
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?
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.

Standing desks. Sit to stand desks. Whatever you want to call them, you've seen them at your local coffee shops, retailers, and offices. These adjustable height desks are upping the game when it comes to productivity, wellbeing, and creating a space with a high cool factor.
It’s not only for these reasons that modernized call and data centers are jumping on the standing desk bandwagon. The research tells us that this super large industry based primarily on call-intake (think credit card companies, travel industry) is loving all the benefits that standing desks and an open floor plan have to offer.
Businesses providing standing desks in conjunction with a welcoming, open floor plan are finding that they can fit more people into the same amount of square footage, while still offering privacy and first-rate comfort to their staff.
Let’s discuss why several call centers are being redesigned with standing desks (including privacy panels- YES! Privacy panels!) and an inviting layout at the forefront and the reasons standing desks are becoming increasingly popular for call and data centers.
When designing an office one thinks of layout, lighting, colors, furniture… all important. But when you mix in the staff’s comfort and performance, you may come up with a completely different design.
And if you’re not thinking about your staff’s comfort and performance, you should be, especially in a call center environment.
The modern call and data center has come a long way since the standard, jammed in, cubicle-lined office layout. And that’s great news for staff and the call center’s ROI.
When designing/redesigning for a modern call center, think both collaboration and privacy, uncluttered and clean open space, and endless customization possibilities. It’s super easy to add storage, acoustic panels, and cable management to an adjustable standing desk station, while still allowing for better use of space than what standard cubicles offer.
Yes, construction costs are something to take into account, but studies show that those costs will be recouped through a more flexible, spacious, creative, collaboration-driven floor plan because staff has higher retention rates, improved performance, and increased productivity.
All of these factors contribute significantly to loyal and happy customers and lets not forget about the lessening of operational costs.
Tests have been done, studies have been completed, comparisons have been made. Open floor plans combined with adjustable standing desks and ergonomic furniture are offering so much more to a company than just a modern working space.
Setting up a data center with collaboration areas, ergonomic furniture that can be controlled by the employee (flexibility with sitting or standing), and spaces to help avoid distractions are all contributing to the success of open floor plans and call center morale.
Improving employee retention is a focus for employers and it’s been proven that providing a sense of community within the workspace, adaptable furniture that provides control of a workstation, and maintaining high satisfaction within a workstation will increase retention rates.
Staff satisfaction comes in many shapes, but a big one is based on their physical comfort (sitting all day in the same position is no good). When a business goes the extra mile to ensure its staff is comfortable through smart workspace design, increased performance will follow.
Offering privacy paneling will support a low distraction rate and provide staff with the solitude sometimes needed in a call center setting. These panels also offer a sense of a controlled environment, meaning less chaos. And we all work better with less chaos.
So, yes, staff comfort will save you money. Upgrading your office space and offering your team controlled comfort and flexibility, while being orderly, accessable, and open is a great big win for all.
Research found that workstation design influenced staff performance in the following ways:
First, what’s the old, un-modern call center office design? Uniformity, hard right angles, narrow passageways, dreary colors- think solitude and loneliness (being dramatic for effect).
Cubicle Nightmare Fuel
The new and improved modern call center, on the other hand, is curvy, vibrant, rich with color and space, and has several collaborative work areas/social areas with customizable and ergonomic workstations and furnishings.
Stand Up. Break Down the Walls.
When staff from a modern call center and staff from an un-modern call center were surveyed, guess who was happier, more comfortable, had greater customer satisfaction, got done with their work faster, and handled their customers better?
I think this goes without having to answer, but just in case- it’s the modern one.
Take a break. Collaborate.
The best call and data center layout designs take look, feel, comfort, and needs into account. Who wants to work in a colorless, sharp, dreary office? No one. Design for a productive and happy environment. This will keep staff cozy and comfy, contributing to good work and good attitude.
But, that’s not all it does. Floor plan, lighting, colors, furniture, technology, community space, privacy- all of these things will help your bottom line, too.
Keep your layout focused on efficiency, productivity, and ultimate performance. This means, give your staff some space away from all the “stuff”. No one works well when overloaded or stressed out, so getting away from computers, phones, TVs- that’s a good thing and will actually help with overall performance.
The best call centers offer comfort, a welcoming atmosphere, spaces for socializing and collaborating, excellent lighting, an open floor plan, and flexibility within workstations.
We thought you’d never ask. I mean, we’ve been talking a lot about this throughout this article, but let’s get down to the nitty gritty. The benefits of using an adjustable standing desk in a call center (or anywhere) are:
