NTFS driver developed from the popular open-source NTFS-3G driver.

Overview

Tuxera NTFS is a commercial NTFS driver developed from the popular open-source NTFS-3G driver, which is a natural part of all major Linux distributions, and also has lots of users on Mac OS X, FreeBSD, Solaris, and NetBSD.

It has been engineered to bring our customers maximum possible performance when accessing NTFS drives while keeping their data safe. It also offers some additional features to its open source counterpart, NTFS-3G, along with commercial support.

Humm... Does this mean that from now on, NTFS-3G will be treated as a second class citizen?

As of Dec 2018, the price for one license is actually only $18 USD, not the $31 listed on this page. And all updates/upgrades free for life, AND one license covers ALL your Macs, if for personal or non-commercial use. Latest update supports Mojave.

Compare that to the Pa@#$n NTFS product price of $21 per license, ONE LICENSE PER MACHINE, plus update fees (about $15) every time Apple issues a new macOS. There are some who say the Pa@#$n NTFS is faster, I can't say; Tuxera is 'fast enough' for my purposes; YMMV. I tried the Pa@#$n NTFS product about 5 years ago, after install and reboot, my Bootcamp disappeared

Just to clarify, I see now the $18 price is a current promotion (25% off); don't know how long the promotion lasts. 'Regular' price is $31 USD, slightly more than Pa@#$n NTFS upfront, but you have to factor in free updates, unlimited Macs.

In my modest opinion this is the best application of the genre.

With the last update, there is a new application installed called Tuxera Disk Manager. This is what allows reformatting to NTFS.

When you format a drive you will need to unmount the drive before you hit the "format" button. Also, there isn't any progress bar so just be patient, it will look like it isn't doing anything, but it will finish. I tested this on a Silicon-Power 2TB external HD and an 8GB PNY flash drive.

And a huge bonus...(at least I hadn't noticed it before if it was there) it now supports formatting to ext2/3/4. Yay!

@ben-marko said "it now supports formatting to ext2/3/4".

Sir, Please provide a link to corroborate that. I could not find anything on the Tuxera site regards support for ext2/3/4

Formatting to NTFS seems to be broken. While the application itself can still format NTFS, Windows 7 and Windows 10 PCs cannot read the drives and ask to format them to make them usable.

Looks like the last update grants NTFS formatting again. Although I do keep SIP disabled, when Apple raked Disk Utility across the coals it ended up completely rewriting it - so whether or not SIP is on or off, it doesn't matter. Oh well.

I prefer Tuxera as well, if only because I've used it since it came out.

From the Tuxera vs Paragon NFTS comparison (http://macntfs.com), Tuxera reveals more strengths. Just the price is still very high for simple using. They should provide more discount campaigns as Paragon does.

Tuxera - You pay 1x 30€ - and then you get all updates/upgrades free.
Paragon - You pay 1x 20€ - and for the next update/upgrade 15€ and for the next u/u 15€ and for the next u/u 15€ and so on and so on.
(Hint: At least With every Mac Upgrade Paragon comes with a new Upgrade.)

What you think cost you more...?
