There is a nice one page write up on this question here (PC Wolrd - Ext4 vs NTFS) on day 16 of a 30-day diary learning Linux.

In addition to this article others have pointed out how NTFS requires extras drivers that are non-native to Linux / Ubuntu.

The article does mention some benefits of a Windows drive that might effect you so I suggest reading it.
