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.

Imagine the great Toilet Paper Riots of 2020 supplanted by Desk Riots.
That’s right, now thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, we’re facing a shortage of desks. Millions of people are attending (or teaching) online school, and there’s no desks to be found at IKEA, Target and the like. There are articles of people cobbling together desk-like things with cinder blocks and boards.
This is a good time to take a step back and ask yourself, “Why am I looking for a cheap table type desk anyway?” Online school is likely here for months to come, and homework is not going
away. Why spend a couple hundred on a temporary solution when you can spend a little more
to invest in a quality adjustable desk that takes you to college and beyond?
• A small enough footprint to fit in a bedroom or dorm room
• A push-button sit-stand option to keep you alert and moving
• A motion sensor for safely raising and lowering the desk with children and pets
• Certified ergonomic design that prevents body pains
• Easy-to-clean desktop surface that withstands pens and peanut butter alike
• Space to hold a laptop or tablet today and a full gaming setup in a few years
• Easy assembly and warranty that guarantees all components
• A 60-day trial period to ensure that you love it
Ask a teenager what they do—and don’t—like about desks they’ve worked at, and you get an earful. Three hot topics: the desk edge, the desktop and the cables. You may be looking for a desk for your 10-year-old right now, but they grow up fast.
“That seam on the front edge snagged my Lulu T. And it hurts.” Desks made with a curved, beveled edge not only prevent snags to your $100 Ts and sore forearms, but they also are easier to keep clean. As the seam deteriorates it catches crumbs and coffee drinks, breeding germs. No seam, no problem. The beveled edge provides ergonomic benefits as well, although teens may not appreciate this until they get a little older.
“My cords got all tangled up and knocked over my Caramel Frappuccino, and now I have no caffeine for my cram session.” Phone charger, tablet charger, keyboard and mouse cords, laptop charger, controller for late-night Fortnite? That’s a lot of cords ready to tangle and topple your desktop contents. Look for a desk with cable management features.
Another thing teens have learned to care about is how their products are made. They want their things manufactured in a sustainable way with recycled materials and fair labor practices—and they’re happy to nag their parents to spend money that way. Look for a made-in-the USA desk manufacturer that values people and the environment.
