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.
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.

Standing desks have become wildly popular for gamers and workers who crave physical relief and higher productivity. One recent study shows that intermittent standing increases productivity by cutting in half the number of breaks users take during the workday. But shopping for height-adjustable desks in a crowded field of options can leave a buyer dazed and confused.
To help gamers and workers navigate the maze and get the most for their money, we’ve prepared side-by-size comparisons between the MojoDesk Solo and other leading brands in the market. Today we’ve compared MojoDesk against the VertDesk v3, looking at issues like comfort, environmental sustainability, and price. Here's what we found:
The most comfortable sit-stand desks have a broad range of adjustability to accommodate a wide variety of body shapes and sizes. MojoDesk spans from 24" to 49.8” to accommodate users ranging in height from 4’11” to 6’6”. The VertDesk v3, on the other hand, has just a 20-inch range of adjustability. If you’re under 5’6” or over 6’5” VertDesk v3 is not the desk for you, and here’s why:
An ill-fitting desk can cause both discomfort and loss of productivity. If your desk is too high, your shoulder blades will rise, wreaking havoc on your neck, shoulder and upper back. Work at a desk that’s too low, and you’ll compensate by holding your arms out to reach the keyboard, causing pain and posture issues.
VertDesk is brutally honest about their narrow height range, stating, “the VertDesk v3 does not have the largest range of motion or advertise a weight capacity exceeding 300 pounds.” (Apparently, the designers of Vertdesk v3 had to limit the range because of stability issues.)
Forearms and wrists should rest at the correct ergonomic position while typing, which is why the MojoDesk design features angled front edges. Wrist position is important because gamers and workers alike engage in notoriously long keyboard sessions, and injuries to hand bones and tendons account for more than 21 percent of all reported workplace hand injuries. The VertDesk v3 has squared-off desk edges, and that increases the bend in your wrist during repetitive and prolonged motion.
The whole point of a sit-to-stand desk is to work comfortably and avoid injury, right? MojoDesk was founded to design desks that meet the most rigorous ergonomic standards. MojoDesk is certified by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Human Factors for Ergonomics Society (HFES), which consider factors of:
There is no mention of ergonomic testing nor stands on the VertDesk v3 site.
Greenguard certification is a designation of sustainability that measures the VOCs (volatile organic compounds) emitted by office and gaming furniture. MojoDesk goes the distance when it comes to sustainability, with full top-to-bottom Greenguard certification. Vertdesk v3 claims it emits “no VOCs" from its LEED and CARB certified work surfaces; they make no mention of the environmental sustainability of the rest of the desk.
Our bodies were made to move in a curve, not a hard angle. It’s with this belief that MojoDesk features a unique curved shape to give you the most desk space and minimize unnecessary reaching, similar to the way a cockpit fits a pilot. MojoDesk comes in three distinct shapes to fit the size and shape of the workspace including an L - Shaped corner desk with curved sides. The VertDesk v3 desktop comes in a rectangular shape only.
And last but not least, the parent company of VertDesk does not actually manufacture the VertDesk itself, instead working with a U.S.-based OEM manufacturer. All MojoDesk standing desks are made and shipped from its company headquarters in Denver, Colorado.
