The old pre 2014 ones are better made
The old ones are better and It's not the same chair anymore. We had a few dozen of these chairs in the office and most people use to love them, however it seems the new ones are of lower quality .. Too many of the components have changed 1. The armrests are not as thick or as comfortable 2. Armrest ...

Expansive Review of the Humanscale Freedom Task Chair - Office Interiors
When you lean back, the seat automatically adjusts. When you turn to switch positions at your desk, the seat turns and locks in place at the angle you want. It’s simple and easy to use without the fuss, clicks, and effort you need with other chairs

What do you guys recommend for a good ergonomic chair?
I have a Humanscale Freedom at work since we have a contract with them, and I hate it with a burning passion. It's like a torture device.

I was previously using a Humanscale Freedom that my friend loaned me until I could afford a good ergonomic chair myself (I had a Ikea Jarvfjallet before that, but found it too uncomfortable once I started working from home). I liked the Freedom, other than it made a lot of noise when moving, which woke the house up on an evening, so I decided against buying another.
