    NTFS-3G/MacFUSE are kind of flakey - I dumped it pretty early on.

    It costs a few bucks but Paragon NTFS is easy to install and reliable. With NTFS-3G, I'd be worried about the integrity of my data when and if I managed to get it working.

    +1 on Paragon.

    However, the only way I use now that worked flawlessly for me on both Snow Leopard and now Lion is this:

    10.6: Enable native NTFS read/write support - Mac OS X Hints

    As I said above, it worked/works flawlessly for me, but hopefully it'll work for you too. If not, just buy Paragon.
