General benefits of Enterprise library is mentioned in the documentation, please refer to this link.  In addition, each block also has different benefits and limitations which can also be found in the documentation.  Refer to the topic "When Should I Use the <Name of the Application Block>".  As for using them in Web and Windows applications, there's really no pro over using EntLib in web over windows or vice versa.  It works just the same.

Well, this should be really more specific to a certain block.  Anyway, my answer would be, not that I know of.  I do read in the past that the Data Access Application Block seems slower to them than using the regular ADO.NET but other think otherwise.
