    The benefit is not having any of the apps you disable ever run again until you enable them or do a factory reset.

    No.
    Disabling them does not delete them. I don't believe there is a performance increase from deleting crap ware anyway, unless it's crapware that's always running.

    It simply hides the app - as of now you can't get rid of the bloatware.

    So is there any real benefit to disabling apps? If so, which ones are safe to disable?

    I think the biggest benefit is that it cleans up your app and widget drawer as the disabled apps are no longer listed there (I like it because it keeps things less cluttered). It does save a little on system resources, in particular available memory which I've seen go up on my Nexus 7 and Note 2 after disabling a bunch of apps (a reboot afterward helps ensure all disabled apps are stopped). That alone hasn't increased performance on either device that I can tell, but it keeps more available memory for other processes if needed.

    As to a list, I've disabled the following without any negative effects so far:

    AllShare Play
    Amazon (two of them, 2.0.11 and 2.0.5)
    Amazon Kindle
    Amazon MP3
    Audible
    Google Play Books
    Google Play Magazines
    Google Play Movies & TV
    Google+
    Group Cast
    IMDb
    Kies air
    Media Hub
    Music Hub
    News Daemon(EUR)
    NFL Mobile
    S Voice
    SNS
    Talk
    Talkback
    Viewdini
    VZ Navigator
    Yahoo Finance
    Yahoo News
    Zappos

    I would say cut/paste them to the Ext SD Card and back them up. This way you gain an extra 500+MB of storage and you don't have them cluttering the space up. Now as for S-Voice, I'm not sure yet if I will remove it as I haven't played with it yet. Is it any good, I know SIRI sucked and worked like 20% of the time based on my real world experience.
