Default Need keyboard, mouse, USB, and HDMI at the same time

Good day.
Earlier this year my son purchased a Note 2.
I'd like to be able to use a keyboard, mouse, USB hard drive, and HDMI simultaneously.
Is this possible?
I have a 50% off cupon for Samsung accessories. I see they have a dock/keyboard combo I can purchase. The keyboard has a Samsung connector on it. I guess I can purchase a Samsung to HDMI adapter to it, but that still leaves me short a mouse and usb hard drive.
I guess I can do a BT mouse, but then there is no USB port.

What about a BT keyboard mouse combo, then use Samsung adapter to USB, for a HD or HDMI, but how can I do HDMI and HD at the same time?

I've also found a dock that charges and gives two USB ports (HD and keyboard), but no HDMI out.

Samsung USB adapter will give me a USB hub for everyting, but no HDMI out.

Anyone know of a way to accomplish everything at one time? I'm at a loss.

From my readings, you cannot do USB and HDMI at the same time.
There are so many BT USB keybords and Mice out there. What combo, mouse/keyboard, has everyone been using with good success?

IIRC, the GT2 does not support hdmi at all. Don't waste your money thinking other Samsung hdmi adapters may work. Many have already tried.

Did some quick reading and dam, you are right! I would have gone nuts trying to get it to work on Christmas for my son. He would have been disappointed, I'd be outside any refund window time wise.
Now, no big deal since he never knew I was thinking of this idea, but I'M really disappointed in HIS tab. What a bummer. I guess all that matters is he still likes it.
Honestly, thanks for the bad news, but saved me some headaches and disappointments!
