The majority of owner's males that I have seen that mentioned a thorough description of the deck adjustment almost always say to have the front of the deck a little bit lower than the back of the deck..
This is supposed to give the best quality of cut.
I have seen some manual say as much as 3/8 to a half an inch lower in the front than the back but basically as long as it's a little bit lower even a quarter of an inch it should give a better quality of cut than if it is flat or higher in the front than the back.
Surprisingly, you'll probably get a better quality of cut from many mowers even if it is higher in the front than the back because it just needs to be different front to back and not the same..

Well thanks everyone for the replies. I guess as long as I'm happy with the resulting cut, that's all that matters. Think I'll keep er heeled at 1/4" difference.
