Maybe, but not quickly. I used it regularly for a several months with the ROKU
until I bothered to figure out how to automount a swap file on a NFS share 
during the ROKU boot-up.
That same CF card has been around for years with thousands of read/writes
from the ROKU, digital cameras and more. I know they're supposed to have
a limit, but I haven't seen it yet.  I'm still using it.
