NTFS 3G / Paragon safe for NTFS storage?
I just received my 3TB external hard drive for my iMac running Mountain Lion. I'm considering partitioning the drive into a HFS+ and a NTFS, but I'd rather have it all on one partition so I could access the same files on both OSX and Windows via Bootcamp.
I found there are a few programs like Tuxera, Paragon, and NTFS3G that will help allow OSX to read/write to NTFS drives, but how reliable are they? Can I expect my data to be 100% safe? Is it any more likely to cause issues than using a separate partitioned drive?
Any input is appreciated thanks!

I used NTFS3G from 2008 to 2010 and have been using Tuxera since I got my MB Air in 2010. I have never had any problems with both. Can't comment on Paragon though,

Format A Hard Drive Using Disk Utility (which is in your /Applications/Utilities folder)
Choose the appropriate format:
HFS+ (Hierarchical File System, a.k.a. Mac OS Extended (Journaled) Don't use case-sensitive)
NTFS (Windows NT File System)
FAT32 (File Allocation Table)

Tuxera works on ML, but annoyingly when active, the Bootcamp option disappears from the Startup in Sys Prefs. Can still boot into Windows fine holding the option key though.
