As both of the above posters noted - the thing it fixes the most is ringing - look at the pictures in this topic to understand:

It also makes the printer quieter if you lower acceleration and less shaking the table and also makes it print slower - especially if there are lots of sharp turns that the head has to make such as text. But on a real printer decreasing acceleration doesn't slow prints down too much. Cutting acceleration in half in theory could slow down print time by 30% (square root of .5 is .707) but in practice it might only be 5% if you have many long straight lines such as infill.

Cura assumes I believe 3000mm/sec/sec acceleration (or maybe 5k?) so if you go slower Cura will not correctly guess your print times.
