-You can log in remotely without using ReadyNAS Remote by using either FTP or HTTPS - though you do need to forward ports in your router. I have both enabled, but I prefer using FileZilla FTP (explicit FTP over TLS works). I also use dynamic DNS, so I can connect by name, and don't need to worry about my ISP changing my IP address.
-You don't need Raidar to do backup. I have it installed on two of my PCs, but not on the other two. I almost never use it, usually I manage the NAS by browsing to https://nasname/admin. For PC backup, I use Acronis (which I used before I had a NAS). The PCs wake up on schedule, and do image backups to a share on the NAS.
You can also use the Duo for your primary storage of photos and videos, and back them up to a shared folder on your PC.
I don't do torrents with my NAS, so I can't help you there.

If you just bought the V1, you should check it out - you might be able to do an exchange. The manual can be found here: http://www.readynas.com/download/documentation/UM/RAIDiator5-3_Home_SW_en_Nov711.pdf
Note I do not own a V2, but I am sure other folks here can answer any questions about it you might have.
