For the smart shopper who looks hard at a purchase before committing, we have comparison reviews of the MojoDesk electric sit-to-stand desk and other available options. Below are videos and links to full reviews as well as our updated 2021 comparison chart at the end that lines up specifications, price, and features of other brands side-by-side.
If you're reading this, you’re probably one of the millions making the transition to work-from-home. If you are considering a standing desk, these reviews and comparison charts will help you decide what options are right for you.
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.
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?
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.
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.

Choosing the right desk for your work and gaming needs can make or break your daily productivity and comfort. When comparing the MojoDesk with the Jarvis Bamboo standing desk (by Fully), don’t skimp on key features that might seem unimportant initially.
We’ve compared the two standing desks side-by-side for critical features that will improve your daily working experience with a feature breakdown, video review, and comparison chart summary at the end of the article.
Pictured: MojoDesk 48x30" Cubicle
The Jarvis Bamboo Standing Desk is available from 30" wide - 78" wide, in a rectangular shape with straight edges on all sides. For this review, in the text section of the article we are comparing our 48 x 30 MojoDesk Cubicle without any additional accessories to only the Jarvis Bamboo 48 x 30 standing desk option which is the closest comparable item in size, shape, specs, and price. All images and specs on the comparison chart reflect this information.
Additionally, our updated 2021 video below compares the Jarvis Bamboo 48x30 to our MojoDesk Organic Curve. All other specs and features remain the same except for the desktop shape itself which has curves on all sides.
Injuries to bones and tendons in hands accounted for 21 percent of all reported workplace hand injuries in 2017, according to OSHA. That's because squared-off desk edges increase the bend in your wrist, especially with prolonged or repetitive motions. The front edges of the MojoDesk are beveled to prevent chafing and irritation as the wrist and arms move back and forth during the workday.
The front edges of the Jarvis Bamboo desk on the standard version are squared off, and this is one area their standing desk loses points.
You can, however, upgrade to an ergonomic Jarvis front edge for $20.

Don’t underestimate the role of stability in your new desk. The MojoDesk is centered on its feet (T-Shape) to provide a great center of gravity. And it’s constructed to eliminate any rocking or tilting forward and backwards.
MojoDesk: Legs 2 3/4 Inches Wide, Feet: 3 1/2 Inches Wide
The legs of the Jarvis Bamboo standing desk are thinner and are positioned rearward on the feet (L-Shape) which can increase the risk of tipping and more wobble.
Jarvis Frame: Legs 2 inches Wide, Feet 3 Inches Wide

MojoDesk’s distinctive design and construction exceeds national standards for durability, stability and safety established by BIFMA (the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer’s Association). BIFMA carries a lot of weight in the business furniture world.
If the Fully Jarvis Bamboo DOES meet BIFMA standards, you’d think the company would highlight and mention this on the Jarvis Bamboo product page. When going through all the tabs (Overview, Options & Accessories, Specifications), we did not find this information.
MojoDesk has a page dedicated to our BIFMA testing on our standing desks and a full report you can download HERE.
The best electric desks, including the MojoDesk, have collision detection and a tip sensor that halts and slightly reverses the motion of an adjustable desk when it makes contact with another object. This avoids costly damage to both the desk and the objects. If the Jarvis Bamboo sit-stand desk has this feature, it is not highlighted on the product page when toggling through the tabs on their product page.
MojoDesk comes with a hand-held controller with four (4) pre-sets and an LED number display to adjust the desk height. The Fully Jarvis comes with a hand controller and up/down toggle only. It you want a control with pre-sets and an LED display you will need to upgrade and it will set you back another $35.

The UL Greenguard Certification Program should be considered a requirement when choosing any piece of office furniture because great indoor air quality is critical to providing a healthy and safe work environment.
MojoDesk takes the extra step to Greenguard certify our ENTIRE desk, not just the desktop, from the top to bottom. See our certification and testing HERE.
In addition, we are focused on sustainability with our manufacturing process. To see our team in action at our Denver factory, please visit our How Mojo is Made page.

When it comes to making an apples-to-apples comparison between MojoDesk and the Jarvis Bamboo—or any of our other top competitors—we strive to make the data clear and easy to understand. You can see all these specs for our 48x30 MojoDesk cubicle version vs. the Jarvis Laminate 48x27 version summarized using our MojoDesk vs. Jarvis Bamboo Comparison Chart.

While we are comparing our 48x30 MojoDesk cubicle desk to the 48x30 Jarvis Bamboo, we do want to mention our other options.
Our bodies move naturally in curves, not hard angles. MojoDesk features a unique curved shape for a “wraparound effect” that optimizes desk space, minimizes unnecessary reaching, and adds to the ergonomic comfort of the MojoDesk experience.
In addition, MojoDesk comes in three distinct shapes to match the user’s work environment. There’s even an L-shaped standing desk designed to fit in corners.
