//Welcome to this page of stuff about nothing!
My name is Jeremy and I am helping draw2much in assisting you guys with your Windows 8(now Windows 8.1) issues.
Note: this FAQ is rather empty, I will fill it as I solve issues and/or when you request info on your purchase.
Now, UC-Logic technology is used in many brands, including MonoPrice, Huion, and SOME Yiynova tablets and screens. These tablets require a battery as Wacom has patented there battery-less technology. Not to worry, these batteries last months at a time, mine lasted about a year of doodling and scribbling. They are pretty light too.
Ifyou want, you can get a battery-less pen from Huion's website (it's rechargeable)
The drivers for windows are known to be a little panicky, but the Mac drivers are reported by many to be better than Wacom's. Just remember to download the latest drivers from UC-Logic www.uc-logic.com/en/index.php?… or from Huion www.huion-tablet.com/download/ if you have one of there tablets.
"I just bought this Monoprice/Yiynova tablet and the pressure sensitivity is horrible"
There default pens for monoprice and yiynova (and possibly others) aren't that great, You have two options get the Monoprice Replacement Pen (I use one of these) or get the Huion Pen.
I personally suggest the Huion pen; It is avaliable in Battery and Rechargeable flavors. If you are looking for an Intuos Style pen, The Huion Rechargeable is the way to go thanks to it's light weight.
The Monoprice pen is also a good option, however, it is a little short which may make the pen feel heavy even though it isn't.

JUST IN! YOU CAN BUY HUION NIBS FROM EBAY! ($8 for 10 free S&H)
--Monoprice nibs are compatable with the Huion pens (Info taken form Huion site) and are less than a dollar**. They are a little more rounded at the end and fit a bit tight...The Huion has a pointier tip and you might like that!(These tips last forever it seems...almost a year and I'm still on my first)
**Monoprice shipping alone is a bit over $7 so you should just get the correct tips/nibs anyways!
