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.

Ergonomics: An applied science concerned with designing and arranging things people use so that the people and things interact most efficiently and safely.
This basically means you are properly aligning key sections of your body to maximize comfort and efficiency while you work. By establishing an ergonomic workspace you can improve pain and discomfort caused from prolonged periods of not moving.
Standing all day can be just as hard, if not harder, on the body as sitting does. MojoDesk is a true sit-to-stand desk, designed to properly accommodate people of all sizes. From the 5th percentile seated female to the 95th percentile standing male user. Basically, heights from 4'11" to 6'6".
The point of a sit-to-stand is to keep moving. We recommend a minimum change of positions at least once per hour with no specific time working in either sitting or standing position. Varying factors such as fitness level, age, medical issues, etc. means everyone transitions to to standing at work at their own pace, but eventually you could see results such as standing at your desk more than 50% of the time. For more tips and information click HERE.
Again, MOVEMENT IS KEY! The aim of a sit-to-stand desk is to increase postural rotation between sitting and standing. Additionally, the Mayo Clinic released a study showing an 18% increase in energy expenditure using an ergonomic chair, like our Varier Move, vs. a standard office chair.
Yes. Standing desks have the ability to reduce tiredness among workers and boost productivity, a new study suggests. "...those who went from relatively sedentary work lives to standing more often reported better engagement with their work and fewer musculoskeletal problems." - SOURCE
Not only that, "In a study of call center employees, those with standing desks were 45% more productive on a daily basis than employees who sat during their shift.".
MojoDesk has been designed to national ergonomic standards along with function and beauty in mind.

For the steel frame, we recommend having some help move it as it weighs 80 pounds. Combined weight for ALL the boxes ranges (based on size of desktop) from 115 - 150 pounds total.
It is 24" - 49.8" - This is measured from the floor to the TOP of the desk surface. This range fits heights of 4'11" to 6'6".
Our frames move 1.5 inches per second. To put that in perspective, the average distance of your sitting height and standing height is about 16 inches. So, you can move from your sitting and standing position in about 10 seconds.
Yes. All MojoDesk frames use a threaded rod linear actuator powered by dual motors - one motor per leg. Yes, this is for all sizes and styles. If you do your research when comparing our price point for other brands you will find others are single motor - one motor that controls both legs.
Yes. The PRE-SET HEIGHT OPTIONS will move automatically after selected with a single touch.
When you adjust the pre-settings to your desired ergonomic height, one touch will rise or lower your MojoDesk to the selected height without having to hold down your selection.
All MojoDesk models have circular grommets that are 3.15 inches (80mm) wide in diameter. These are intended for proper cable management and pair well with our MagicSnap Cable Tray for 72" wide desks or our Cable Tray Riser Kit for 48" and 60" wide desks.
Each desk surface measures 3/4" thick.
Only top-quality reclaimed wood is used. It must meet the requirements outlined in the Recycled Content Standard, V7.0 established by SCS Global Services, an international leader in third-party certification and the development of science-based standards for environmental sustainability.

3D laminate and MDF substrate allow the ability to create unique shapes that nobody else in the industry can. We can make soft corners, rounded edges and have no seams anywhere for bacteria and other viruses to get into. The 3D laminate is also uniquely durable compared to regular laminates while still being able to wrap around the unique shapes of our work surfaces. It gives a consistent finished look all the way around the desktop and still beats other techniques for durability.

MojoDesk uses an extra cost accelerometer to precisely monitor any minute change in the orientation or velocity of the top and stops immediately upon encountering any obstruction. Mojo Desk’s collision detection works equally well in either up or down direction.
The standard collision detection that comes with other tables will not react to a collision with something soft – like your leg or a chair – and easily tip the table and its contents onto the floor.

Using the power of magnets they simply snap onto the steel frame. This magnet technology includes our Cable Tray, Cable Chain, and Powerbar.

Adding a standing desk mat keeps your feet and body comfortable while you stand. This is especially helpful if you are rocking high heels or some slick looking dress shoes that are made more for looks than comfort. But a standing marathon is not advised; always change positions.

Mojo Gamer Pro is used by and recommended by top Twitch and YouTube Gaming Streamers such as GLADD and Aztecross Gaming. Mojo Gamer Pro allows you to set your perfect height and ergonomic position with a push of a button.
It really comes down to how much gear you have, how many screens, and the constraints of your gaming space. MojoDesk offers a size range that fits into a 48", 60" or 72" wide space with clearance on both sides.

Yes. Desktop converters are not actually ergonomic. If you were to measure the distance from the floor to the top of your existing desk and you added a converter, it would turn it into a standing desk only for those 6’3” or taller. The reason for this is, fixed height desks are designed to fit the 95th percentile seated male user, so putting a converter on top of it will render it a poor ergonomic solution for seated work.
Consider a true sit to stand desk with an adjustment range of 24” – 50” so you can get the benefits associated with MOVEMENT regardless of your size.
Yes. There are several reasons why.
1. Price. The MojoDesk 48x30 cubicle rectangle starts at $499. Varidesk ProDesk 48 price is $695.
2. MojoDesk also offers more sizes and shapes. The Varidesk ProDesk is only available in 48" and 60" rectangular cubicle sizes. MojoDesk comes in 48", 60", and 72" wide in rectangular cubicle and rectangular organic.
3. In addition, an option of a 72" inch L-shape corner standing desk model is available.
Most keyboard platforms are small and wobbly. They need to be adjusted manually by the user and generally are seldom used once the “newness” wears off. The reason for keyboard platforms was to achieve neutral wrist alignment which can be achieved through proper height adjustment of your MojoDesk.
Adding a standing desk mat keeps your feet and body comfortable while you stand. This is especially helpful if you are rocking high heels or some slick looking dress shoes that are made more for looks than comfort.
BIFMA stands for the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association – an office furniture trade industry association comprised of the large (Billion$+) office furniture manufacturers and many smaller organizations as well.
Manufacturers volunteer engineers for specific committees, and they jointly develop test procedures that measure structural integrity and durability regardless of the joinery or assembly or materials used in construction. Mojo Desks are designed, manufactured and tested to BIFMA standards by independent test labs.
We not only claim compliance – we prove it!!
Below is a link to the BIFMA site for further information.
If a product has been Greenguard Certified, it has been tested and scientifically proven to have low chemical emissions. In other words, it’s guaranteed to give off only low levels of volatile organic compounds, or VOCs (Volatile Organic Chemicals).
