Default Wireless or Virtual Surround Speakers?

Has anyone has any experience with a virtual surround system or wireless speakers? Are there any wireless speakers? I have a fairly large living room but with the entertainment niche that the builder has in my condo, it doesn't rrally support a lucrative surround system. I HATE wires all over the place and I would have to do some drilling, etc.

Does anyone recommend these "virtual surround" speakers that I keep seeing? I know CNET recommends one but I am sure its a waste of money. Any input?

If you are definitely going to go with one or the either I would go with the virtual surround speaker. You will get very poor audio and noise with wireless speakers. However, my recommendation is always to stick with a full surround setup with wires. It just cannot be beat.

I'd definitely go virtual over wireless, but the key to making it work effectively is that you have a room with walls on both sides. Basically the sound is reflected off the walls toward the listening position.
"But that's exactly my point! Because you have to Wonder, now how did the machines know what Tasty Wheat tasted like? Maybe they got it wrong. Maybe what I think Tasty Wheat tasted like actually tasted like, uhh, oatmeal, or uhh, tuna fish? That makes you wonder about a lot of things, like you take chicken for example, maybe they couldn't figure out what to make chicken taste like, which is why chicken tastes like everything!"
