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.

Designed with the gamer in mind, the MojoDesk Gamer Pro takes into consideration every aspect of the gaming experience. Unlike its competitors, the Gamer Pro exceeds expectations in user experience and hardware support. The ability to set the height to any player’s size as well as the lack of keyboard bounce gives a seamless gaming environment.

In short, yes. But what are the features to look for in the best sit-to-stand gaming desk? Most importantly, the desk must be adjustable. Not just adjustable to a few selected heights as some competitor desks are designed. This desk must have a full range of motion for any required height.

The Mojo Gamer Pro ranges from 24” to 50 ¼” in desktop height which is perfect for gamers who are short (4’11”) to tall (6’6”).
Desk stability is a key feature. Gaming involves a lot of movement and the desk should not wobble and teeter about when used. The MojoDesk Gamer Pro gaming desk has no keyboard bounce. This is also a critical feature to remove any negative response to pounding on the keys. Stable and sturdy are features essential to the gamer because a shaky platform could hamper a winning performance.
A large work surface for all the gamer’s accessories (and snacks, of course) is an absolute necessity. And along with that, the ability to maintain an uncluttered surface is an appealing feature too.
The Mojo Gamer Pro comes in three sizes; 48x30”, 60x30”, and 72x30”. Also included are five additional accessories to help create a functional and clutter-free desktop.
The Gamer Pro comes with a monitor arm and CPU hanger for keeping those items secured and out of the way. Also included are the MAGicSnap cable management chain, tray and power bar. These items provide premium cable and gear management.
