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 2021 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. Among other features, 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 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.

Shopping for a new sit-to-stand gaming or work desk? Price is important, but so is value—you don’t want to waste your money on a height-adjustable desk that’s lacking in safety, durability or comfort. At MojoDesk, we routinely compare sit-stand desks against our MojoDesk Solo to help desk enthusiasts choose wisely among the myriad options.
In this article, we have two models we are compariing. In the video below, we compare the Evodesk Ergo Edge (color: Carbon Black) standing desk vs the MojoDesk Organic Curve (color: Matte Lux Black) electric sit-stand desk with a full review of worksurface, stability, features, stability, and cost. For full specs, please see the notes in the YouTube video.
Additionally, we have a spec chart and more details between the Evodesk electric standing desk and the MojoDesk Solo Cube—and the findings may surprise you. Read here for comparisons of MojoDesk vs. other brands of sit-stand desks.
Let's start with issues of safety and health: two critical factors when researching a high-quality gaming desk.
ANSI and BIFMA are industry benchmarks to certify that office furniture is designed and tested to high standards of quality, ergonomics and durability. Office products that pass muster are typically marked as “ANSI/BIFMA certified.” Most retail sites that sell consumer-grade desks (Amazon, IKEA) avoid this testing, as they assume buyers don’t care. MojoDesk begs to differ! Our desks are not only ANSI/BIFM certified; our founder Dave Carson was on the ANSI board that created those standards!
Nowhere in its product information does Evodesk make any mention of standards or testing; instead, it offers “functional ergonomics” as an “innovative option” to make your power electric desk “even better.” Wait, what? With no mention of certification for ergonomics and quality, we’re scratching our heads at how Evodesk can promote itself as “the Lamborghini of standing desks.”
All MojoDesk models come standard with a programmable hand control with four pre-sets and LED display. The Evodesk offers this as a $59 upgrade.
Many office and household products emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Greenguard certifies the VOC safety of products, and MojoDesk has that stamp of approval, from the top of the desk to the bottom. While Evodesk calls its sit-to-stand desktops “sustainable and real,” there are two glaring issues:
The Evodesk’s claim of “VOC-free finishing,” on its desktop only, without any testing by a governing body, can be a deal-breaker for health-conscious (earth-friendly) gamers and users.
MojoDesk offers a 60-day no-risk trial for all standing desks and pays for return shipping. Evodesk allows customers to return its product within 30 days; however, the customer must pay for return shipping and initial installation.
The cost for the Evodesk electric standing desk is $658 vs. $499 for the MojoDesk Solo.
When it comes to buying the right electric standing desk, shop carefully, and make sure you’re comparing apples to apples.Don't skimp on quality and durability, or you'll be back in desk-shopping mode in no time.
Side-by-testing is invaluable but it comes down to the reviews, right? Google MojoDesk, and you'll see we’re top-ranked among standing desk review sites. Ready to try out a Mojodesk? Contact our knowledgeable MojoDesk team today.
