That's pretty much it, but it' also depends on where you're riding.
On my road bike I set my height like that. Another quick way of doing it is to place your heel on the pedal and with the cranks in the 6 o'clock position, you knee just barely locks out. Then, when you ride with the balls of your feet on the pedals you're NOT locking your knees out!
On my mountain bike in rough terrain, I drop my saddle about an 1/2 inch. In really rough stuff, I'll drop it even lower!
