First of all the relevant comparison is estout versus outreg2. outreg has not been developed for some time, which triggered Roy Wada's development of outreg2.

The primary difference is that outreg2 (like outreg) does all the heavy lifting itself, whereas estout piggybacks upon the official - estimates- suite of Stata commands. Thus additional tools such as estadd would not be useful in conjunction with outreg2, since outreg2 does not make use of stored estimates.

I used to use outreg, and tested outreg2 when it appeared. estout is complex, but also is very fully documented by an extensive article in the Stata Journal. estout also has a useful "intro" help file which shows how it can be used without any complexity, taking the defaults for many of the options. I highly recommend that anyone interested in output to text, HTML or LaTeX have a look at estout.

But, if your needs are more complicated than that, estout has
zillions of options. It also can be used with the companion packages
estadd and estadd_plus, which allow you to include additional
statistics. (But perhaps those routines could also be used with outreg2?)
