On several occasion I've dealt with the Axis cameras and they were quite
good.  They aren't USB though, they are all Ethernet.  They run Linux
internally, and provide an IP interface, and I've only heard good things
about them.  They start at around $500, but for full pan/tilt/zoom expect
to spend over a grand.  They will do PoE for power.

Pretty much every USB camera I've tried has lead to pain and suffering.
