Checking http://www.simpletech.com/flash/flash_prox.php will show reliability of write/erase endurance at 100,000 cycles. For data storage and just reading 1s and 0s flash lasts a very long time. Just don't write to them as a swap file or you could kill it real quick.
Also add "noatime" to your CF partitions in /etc/fstab. There is no point in recording the latest access time in the file inodes each time a file is used.
As with HD's, CF media keeps spare blocks and transparently swaps out bad for new when they wear or start failing. So in use do not expect failures to start gradually.
