Useful points are mentioned here. In addition to the three main questions for deciding to accept as a reviewer, it is good to know that it may be possible to comment on a part of paper, or suggest other reviewers.

Yes, qualification and time has a great impact on the quality of the paper to be reviewed. And, honest assessment is also critical and hence, the conflict of interest provides its own impact.

I agree that reviewing papers is a huge opportunity for studying and looking to aspects of your research field that are not usual for you. The time is often too short and academics are so busy that sometimes during review processes you focus only on the things you already know.
