Syncro-tilt (a Global/Teknion term used for their specific mechanism) automatically adjusts the angle of both back and seat at the specified ratio. This keeps things easy, while improving comfort and back support when people recline. I honestly don't know whether or not this is a huge deal when it comes to ergonomics/comfort - maybe a passing chair expert can comment.
If I didn't want such a sweet deal (which fell into my lap) / all mesh / a [sexy looking] chair geared towards my type of work, I would also consider a chair with what Global calls a multi-tilter, which is like the manual transmission of chair mechanisms. It allows you to customize both your back angle and seat angle independently.
Honestly, its a cool piece of tech built in, but it didn't really sell me on the chair. If you're usually in the upright position while working, and your time is worth a lot / you like to change your position often, this is probably the mechanism for you. Overall, however, you should base your chair choice on other ergonomic/economic/aesthetic considerations - that is, unless I'm mistaken/uninformed of the true genius of the thing.
As soon as I truly get used to the chair I'll post a full review. My pros/cons will probably change as well.
