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.

A Mayo Clinic study saw an 18% increase in energy expenditure using an ergonomic chair, like the Varier MOVE chair, vs. a standard office chair.
The Varier Move is a classic. It was designed in the 80s as the best ergonomic chair for nonconventional sitting. It has a distinct design that is not only recognizable, but also functional. It provides your body support for continuous movement Move is an ideal work chair and complements the MojoDesk adjustable height desk.
Varier's mission is to challenge our our sedentary lifestyle of sitting for 8 hours or more at work coupled with countless hours at home.
Our bodies are designed to be active. In fact, Dr. Levine of the Mayo Clinic was the first to name and measure something called N.E.A.T. It stands for Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis and is a measure of the activity you engage in during work and leisure time (outside of exercise). By increasing your N.E.A.T., you can stave off chronic disease and burn more calories.
You can increase your N.E.A.T. at work by changing positions from sit-to-stand every 30 minutes. That’s why I love that Mojo Desk is a true sit-to-stand desk built with active ergonomics in mind.
You’ve probably heard of ergonomics before. But you may not have heard of ACTIVE ergonomics. Active ergonomics is the new standard for healthy works paces. This is when a healthy work posture is achieved by engaging your own muscles of the spine and core.
Traditional task chairs with lumbar support and armrests actually hinder your ability to be strong and injury free because the core muscles that stack and protect the spine begin to atrophy (or get smaller).
Standing at a workstation is a better position for spinal alignment than sitting, but muscles become fatigued after a while leading to cocked hips, leaning, and poor posture.
Having an option like the Varier Move active stool that is N.E.A.T. certified allows you to use your Mojo desk to its full potential so you can fidget throughout the day and keep your body moving and happy.
Back in the day, physical activity wasn’t scheduled into daily life – it was life. The Varier MOVE chair helps the way we sit Learn more about the Varier MOVE chair watching the video below and visit our product page HERE.
