I've used the WD Live device the recent years before and it had some nice NTFS performance of about ~11MB/sec. Someone suggested the Paragon NTFS drivers as this driver is likely preinstalled on the WD devices.
This version seems to be working on ARM devices:

Does someone manage to compile it for Raspbian? Unfortunately my Linux skills are far too limited to do such task. A better NTFS performance would be really appreciated.
