This all looks good to me. Don't be worried by the steadily increasing
'unc' (uncorrected error) value, unlike other drivers the cinergyT2
appears to report a total count of errors here rather than the the
number of errors since the previous query. This is something I plan to
have a look into and see if it's easily fixable in the driver.

Also, I suspect that either the driver or the device never reports a
'ber' (bit errors) so you will always get '0' here. Again, I plan to
have a look at the driver to see if this is possible.
