Having seen a few mentions about Resharper on this site and on SO, I thought I would take a look. There seems to be a hell of a lot of documentation on their website, so I was just wondering, in a snapshot, what benefits it brings and what are the main reasons people use it?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
Speed. It makes a lot of things much quicker.
My favourite features are the code navigation, which are a huge time savers.
The refactorings are handy, but VS itself is catching up in that area.
I also use it with the awesome StyleCop for Resharper plugin for more painless StyleCopping. (This is now incorporated in to StyleCop itself. See http://stylecop.codeplex.com/ for more info.)
I suggest you download the trail and give it a go, virtually everyone I know who has tried it has been impressed, but not everyone, some people don't get on with it.
Resharper makes coding more enjoyable.
You have to try it yourself to get a feel for it, a feature summary doesn't do it justice.
IMO: Coding Assistance is the best feature of the Resharper.
A fast look at features will give you the picture.
