My name is Jeremy and I have taken the liberty of taking some of the load off of =draw2much in assisting you guys with you Windows 8 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.
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.
NOTES FOR A HAPPIER USER> Remember to install your drivers first, then insert your tablet. If you can't get the UC-Logic drivers to work, the Huion 7.0 will work with Monoprice tablets (I use the Huion and not a single glitch)
"I just bought this Monoprice/Yiynova tablet and the pressure sensitivity is horrible"
There default pens 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.

Huion Tips with pen holder: www.huion-tablet.com/product/p… The tips can only be purchased with the pen holder from the English website (8 tips)
Huion only sells the Tips without the holder from there Chinese Store, and the shipping would be very high.
--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 but that is just preference.
