I have tried tried NTFS-3G, which I believe is paid as Tuxera NTFS. Is Parage NTFS better? Or any other of your choices?

    I have been using Paragon NTFS for Mac (now at version 9) for several years http://www.paragon-software.com/home/ntfs-mac/. It is extremely fast and never gave me any issues, you forget it is installed.

    It is a commercial software, but I think it is reasonably priced and definitely worth it. They also have a trial version, give it a shot.

    MacFUSE
    which makes it possible to use any FUSE (File-system in USErspace) file systems in Mac. And the most useful FUSE is the NTFS-3G Read/Write Driver, which ables system to load NTFS with read and write capability.

    Tuxera NTFS for Mac
    Eliminate the dependency on an external MacFUSE installation. Instead  include a customized rebranded version of MacFUSE as a part of the file system driver

    Yes, Tuxera is the commercial version of NTFS-3G.

    There is an older benchmark showing Paragon NTFS being the fastest, followed by Tuxera and then NTFS-3G. I'm not sure how representative it is today.http://www.codykonior.com/tuxera-ntfs-vs-paragon-ntfs-mac-benchmarks/

    Since I don't use any of them myself I don't have first hand experience.

    I've used NTFS-3G for several years and have had no issues with it. There are two versions, a free one and the Tuxera commercial one. The only real difference is that the free version is usually a generation behind the commercial one and doesn't have the same level of tech support. Never used the Parage product, and have never even heard of it.
