4K Tv as a monitor

I'm looking to purchase a 55" 4K TV I can use as a monitor.


Low energy consumption (wattage). I live off the grid.

IPS with ability to calibrate

Bluetooth capable

Under a $1000

Good contrast ratio

120Hz refresh rate

Mac friendly (if there is such a thing)

It doesn't have to be the latest model. Something  from 2017, 2016 would be OK.

I will not use the TV to do critical graphical work. I'm an artist and have an Epson 9600 and a 3880 to make prints. I want to use the TV to get an idea what a larger print would look like before I print, say 30"x 24". I use a 27" Dell IPS display as my main monitor. A 2015 15" MacBook Pro is my main box.

Your comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
