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.

MojoDesk is rated for a lifting capacity of over 250 pounds (or 1 lumberjack) and has one motor per leg. You can watch see the details of our stability and safety test HERE.
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.
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.
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.

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.

Yes. There are several reasons.
Price. The MojoDesk 48x30 cubicle rectangle starts at $499. Varidesk ProDesk 48 price is $695. MojoDesk also offers more sizes and shapes.

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!!
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.
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.
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. In short, when tired, take a break and sit and vice versa.
MojoDesk is a sit to stand desk with an adjustment range of 24” – 50”. It is intended to promote postural rotation - the change from seated to standing work. When you feel even the slightest discomfort while standing hit your preset memory button and your Mojo Desk will automatically stop at your personal optimal seated posture. We recommend a minimum change rate of at least once per hour with no specific time working in either position.
With that said, 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. You can learn more and purchase our Mojo Comfort Mat HERE.
