Its not as fast as DT Ultimate G2, let alone HyperX 64gigs- but it has a solid built quality.
I am not very sure how much channel. Kingston HyperX 64GB is an 8 channel architecture and the results are in front of you. That drive also comes with rugged design, but its not as rugged as Survivor Stealth. Performance however is where HyperX Datatraveler stands tall and proud.
But its in a different league and comparison is unfair. Main reason is Kingston Datatraveler 64GB USB 3.0- the lowest amount of space available in this line-up costs $100 at the time of writing. This is a 16gig drive- and it costs under $30. If we were comparing 32 or 64 gigs model against each other, that would have been different.
The only CON is the circular grip that has a good habit of being a nuisance- and now that I am thinking about it, if someone uses the Survivor Stealth in a keychain the weight of the chain would stress the drive when connected. Its something you can avoid by having the keychain hole on the cover. Also Corsair could have provided a lanyard or lanyard loop at the very least. The drive comes with 5 years warranty.
If you’re not going to pay $100 for a quick 64GB drive and need something that cheap, rugged and don’t have USB drives crowding around the USB ports, you can shortlist this drive and grab it for under $30.
