Original USB HUB and HDMI adapter for Gemini PDA are really expensive. Maybe it's interesting for Planet Computers fans, but for those, who just bought a good device for using it, there is no need in purchasing original devices just because of Planet Comptuters logo on it. Especially, if there is a lot of cheaper analogs around.

So, I start this topic to post here reports of experience with using such third party devices with Gemini PDA, to help others choose a device they need.

Please, post model names, links to the pages with description or where it could be purchased with your experience how it works with Gemini PDA.

The HDMI on the Gemini is CUSTOM, so you wont get HDMI-output without it. (Some people have reported getting an USB-C to Display-Link, and then Display-Link to HDMI to work, but that is probably/possibly because the Display-Link adapter "talks" to the Gemini on another level than an HDMI adapter does...?)

People have also reported that most (if not all??) hubs work, with the obvious exception that the HDMI ports wont work. So in that regard you should be able to just "knock yourself out" with buying, trying and using almost anything you like...
