The 1600's low price point is hard to ignore. This CPU features the lowest price-per-core through AMD's Ryzen portfolio, and in light of its solid showing through our application and game suite, it also provides an impressive price-to-performance ratio

Guru3D

As such Ryzen 5 1600 might be the steal of the year as you purchase a properly fast 6-core processor at 219 USD.

TechPowerUp

Performance of the Ryzen 5 1600 processor is very reasonable across the board and excellent once you start looking at multi-threaded applications.

TechSpot

I'm trying to look at this as objectively as I can and you can certainly make a strong case for buying either the Ryzen 5 1600 or the Core i5-8400. The only hiccup is that you can actually buy the Ryzen CPU right now whereas you can't get the 8400.
