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.

If you’re comparison shopping for a standing desk or gaming desk to improve your comfort and health throughout your workday, you’re in good company. There are a reported 34 chronic diseases linked to sedentary behavior, and Apple CEO Tim Cook has declared, “sitting is the new cancer.”
You want the best when buying a big-ticket item that will improve your productivity, health, and working comfort. To help you research the best sit-to-stand desks, we’ve provided a side-by-side comparison video of the 60x30 MojoDesk Organic Curve and the 60x30 Uplift V2 with C2 Commerical Frame.
Both the MojoDesk Organic Curve and the Uplift V2 come in a 60 X 30-inch desktop and offer a 5-year warranty, but the similarities end there. In addition to the Uplift V2, we have full comparison charts and articles on how MojoDesk stacks up to other major brands of sit-to-stand desks.
The leading (front) edges of ALL MojoDesk models are beveled to provide a contoured, ergonomic edge for wrist and forearm comfort. In contrast, the front edges of the Uplift V2 are square. Studies have shown this can contribute to pain, irritation, discomfort and even injury.
The entire MojoDesk standing desk--frame and all--is Greenguard Certified to reduce VOC emissions in the work environment. With the Uplift V2 and three other leading competitors, Varidesk, Fully Jarvis and SmartDesk2, only the desktop itself is protected.
Our commerical grade frame comes standard with all models and does not require a crossbar. In designing the frame for the MojoDesk, the legs were centered in a T-Connection to provide optimum balance and mitigate any tendency to tip or rock. The legs on the Uplift V2 Commercial C-Frame adjustable desk, on the other hand, are rearward on the feet at an L-Connection, which creates a risk for rocking or toppling. Additionally, the UPLIFT frame requires a crossbar.
UPLIFT: COMMERCIAL C-FRAME: LEGS 2 1/4” WIDE, FEET 3” WIDE
MOJODESK: LEGS 2 3/4” WIDE, FEET 3 1/2” WIDE
A 4-position memory hand-controller comes standard with every MojoDesk standing desk. Adding a hand controller to the Uplift desk adds $30 to the cost.
MojoDesk includes a steel wire management cover to hide all the cords the desk needs to operate. This is standard with all models, no upcharge. These cover up the cord to the hand control, each leg, and the power cord. UPLIFT does not include a cable net or cover or any type of system except for a bag of zip ties.
MojoDesk offers a 60-day NO RISK guarantee and pays for return shipping; not so with the Uplift V2.
MojoDesk and its parent company, Xybix, have been the nation’s leaders in ergonomically designed and constructed workstations for 30 years. All Xybix products lead the industry in ergo-friendliness. All MojoDesk desktops are made at our
Colorado factory and headquarters.
The MojoDesk Organic Curve 60x30 is $699 and free shipping. The Uplift V2 with Commerical C-Frame (as tested) will cost $760 and free shipping. $709 for the desktop and frame, $30 for the 4 pre-set LED hang control, and $20 for a plastic cable management tray. The Uplift tested was purchased in February, 2021.
