When used properly, NTFS will fail far less often than FAT32. FAT32 is about as simple as filesystems get. There is no state protection at all. If the PC goes down mid-write, the half-written data will be left on the drive and you just hope it didn't screw anything important up.

NTFS is a journaling filesystem. If the same situation happens, it can recover rather than leaving the filesystem in an inconsistent state.

NTFS should, and my personal experience, including accessing the file system from different OSes, backs this up, is far, far, more reliable than FAT.
