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 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.

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.

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.

One of the most important safety aspects of a height-adjustable desk is proper collision detection. A sit-to-stand desk should stop immediately when it collides with your knee, chair - anything. Failure to do so can cause the desk to tip over and other risks. MojoDesk is equipped with a high-end collision detection module that is superior to others on the market and which works equally well in both up and down directions.
