Any benefits of Nero over K3B?

Let me elaborate on that.  ISOs are fine, it's when you try and copy 
protected materials.  Like do a straight CD/DVD copy that is set as copy 
right protected.  It will yell at you for being a dirty thief and then 
stop your burn.  It hoses all your next CD/DVDs only after it writes the 
TOC and tries to start burning actual data.  Then it remembers you are a 
dirty thief and cancels the burn.  I only came accross this because I 
had a home DVD I was trying to copy, but the author checked the copy 
right box when making it.  And it was in an older version (Nero 5-ish 
maybe) so that bug might be fixed.  Many other software packages will do 
something similar when detecting that copy right protection, definately 
not a Nero only thing.
