Lots.

This is a great community, full of some of the most intelligent and downright creative people on the planet.

You will learn, and you will teach.

You may make friends, you may make enemies, you may earn prizes or free pro accounts.

Basically, you will get out what you put in, maybe more.

I would say the greatest benefit is the input from other members.
I have seen quite a few suggestions form members incorporated into peoples 'ibles either in the form of alterations to projects or the actual production of the 'ible itself, the first ible I created was altered at the suggestion of another member, it was only part of the wording but it did make an improvement to the impact it had.
Also it's useful when you hit a problem with a project to have thousands of like minded people all over the world who can make suggestions for you.

A sense of accomplishment and well being brought on by being involved in the process of creating, building and giving as opposed to leeching and taking.

Typical question from the entitlement generation. Better question might be of what benefit can you be to the instructables community? What do you have to offer to others including those who go out of their way to be generous and help bring knowledge and understanding to the world. A basic fundamental concept of most societies is that it is better to give than to receive. Unfortunately the new entitlement generation has that idea flipped around.

Are you talking about becoming a pro member? If you pay for a pro membership or earn one buy posting an instructable the editors think is good enough to feature you'll be able to download any of the instructables as a PDF file.

Weather your a pro member or not you can enter the contests and challenges and possibly win prizes.
