    tittle says it all, when plugging in a USB blutooth dongle for a wireless mouse, its perfect but when connecting various external HDD's, it locks up for about 10 secs? anyone have this issue before?

    Can you dictate specific steps to replicate the issue?

    1. Plug USB Hardrive Via USB port on rMBP
    2. rMBP freezes for 5-10 seconds (no control of mouse or keyboard)
    3. Returns to normal

    No issues here. Mine is two days old, hadn't tested this until I saw your thread. Works fine though. External drive is formatted HFS/Journaled.

    Is your HD newer? Older models have slower start up speeds or are not designated for a Mac.
