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 comparison chart (currently being updated for 2022) 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. 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 for ultimate stablity 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.
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.
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?
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.

"The Mojo Gamer Pro package includes 5 accessories: the CPU hanger, monitor arm, cable tray, cable chain, and power bar. The cable tray, cable chain, and power bar employ the Mojo “MAGicSnap” technology. MAGicSnap is a fancy name for a clever magnet system that makes installing and moving these accessories to the right position on the metal frame a breeze. All three of these accessories work together to minimize cord clutter.
Once I had everything installed, anyone who looks behind or under the desk won’t see a single cord, except for the power bar cable running outside the leg of the frame (see photo). The other two accessories are self-explanatory. The CPU hanger locks in your PC tower underneath the desk and has adjustable straps for the variety of PC case sizes these days and the monitor arm clamps to the backside of the desk.
A handsome electric powered sit-stand desk with zero bouncing or wobbling. By going with the MojoDesk Gamer Pro Bundle, you get the full package: a clutter-free, streamlined look with comprehensive cable management accessories + ergonomic monitor mount."
"Mojo Gamer Pro is a purpose-built gaming desk that has the key features that are important to PC gamers. At $949 the Mojo Gamer Pro is a substantial investment but you're getting a lot for your money. The Pro includes a high-quality monitor arm with a vesa mount and an adjustable PC hanger. This desk's party trick is its cable management. Included is a large cable pass-through, MAGicSnap Cable Management Chain, integrated tray and power strip. We like the Gamer Pro so much because it's ready to go right out of the box, no accessories needed. It also has a great warranty and is available in a variety of smart sizes."
If this fits in your budget, we rate the MojoDesk as a strong buy, especially if you're looking for a stable desk that won't shake when you're typing.
We like the free shipping, quick delivery, easy assembly, 30 day no-risk guarantee, low VOC emissions, beveled tabletop, it's ability to accommodate short and tall users, it's smooth operation, and color options."
"Clocking in with dimensions of 60x30, the MojoDesk has space for everything, easily fitting two 27" monitors, a Nintendo Switch, a microphone, and everything else that most users will require room for, and then some. Smaller and larger versions exist, measuring out at 48x30 and 72x30 respectively. I find that the 60x30 model is exactly perfect for my needs, holding all my tech, while leaving some room for other things that add a personal touch.
As far as appearance goes, the desk also excels in that department, looking sleek, but also visually distinctive with its "carbon fiber" coloration pattern. This makes it stand out as something unique while still retaining a subtle, professional look. On the front of the desk is a tapered edge, as well as a slight curve that serves to make things more comfortable as you rest your arms on it, which goes a long way when you're playing games with a keyboard and mouse. It's a rather simple addition, but after my time with the Mojodesk, I don't think I could go back to a standard desk that lacks the ergonomic feel that this offers."
"MojoDesk is a new and interesting product adjustable electric desk that looks great in the office, has a great vertical range, and has some nice accessory options. These desks also come in an “Organic” shape; we love the curved front and back that breaks us out of the boring straight rectangle.
The on-desk power strip is really convenient and has a MASSIVE power cord. This will save you setup time. The cable chain (which is plastic) is a really attractive and slick addition to this desk for holding the cables that go from the desktop to the floor.
This is a high quality desk with straightforward assembly, a great height range, and a slick design."
"In addition to caring about the environment, we need to remember to take care of our personal health as well, and here’s a way to do both. Working from a stand up desk is great for your posture, and relieve stress from your back, neck and shoulders. MojoDesk makes some of the best adjustable desks, and their factory relies heavily on solar power."
"Excellent ergonomics, wobble-free legs, and industry-leading cable management are essential characteristics that inform this adjustable-height standing desk. Mojo Desk builds its desks using FSC certified wood. All finishes are Greenguard certified for low VOC emissions. Additionally, the company’s facility is powered by 65% solar energy."
"MojoDesk might take a lot of pride in just how solid and robust their standing desks are, but there’s more to these sit-stand solutions than meets the eye. The Mojo Gamer Pro Standing Desk is easy to assemble, built like a tank yet lighter than it looks, luxurious to touch, and smooth to operate. Best of all, it keeps everything tucked away and in its proper place, leaving you with a neat and tidy desk free of distractions from your game."
"May I present the single greatest item that has come into my life this year: MojoDesk. Not only does it have a super-sleek and sturdy steel construction, but it's ergonomically sound so it'll leave you feeling refreshed at the end of a long work day, not jammed up and achey. If you're working eight hours a day and your spine is pretty much shaped like a C hunching over your current desk, you might want to give this some thought. Not only has this desk totally improved my posture, but I feel good knowing that the company really took every little detail into consideration when designing what I consider to be the perfect desk."
